Celebrating Trevor Paglen’s “Orbital Reflector” in Miami

Last Thursday night in Miami, special guests boarded a 44-foot Pardo Yacht on its way to the private oceanfront residence of the Pishevar family. Hosted by The Pishevar Family Foundation, “Reflections 2018” was co-produced by FITZ & CO and The Blue.

Members from the Pishevar family—including founder and investor Shervin Pishevar, his daughter Darya Pishevar, sister Dr. Bita Sarah Pishevar-Haynes, and father Dr. Abraham Pishevar—welcomed VIP attendees to honor artist Trevor Paglen, whose artwork, Orbital Reflector, was co-produced by the Nevada Museum of Art.

There to celebrate the intersection of art, technology, and space, guests sipped cosmic-inspired cocktails as they viewed the new artwork—a reflective, nonfunctional satellite, that was, as Paglen said, meant for its viewers to “look up at the night sky with a renewed sense of wonder, to consider our place in the universe and to reimagine how we live together on this planet.”

After, Paglen gave an informative talk about launching a work into outer space and being fascinated by non-commercial work that ultimately will burn or disintegrate. The night culminated with a surprise piano performance by musician Eric Lewis, known as ELEW, and DJ sets with Alex Pasternak and Black Coffee.
