ART BASEL MIAMI 2016

Art Basel Miami Beach continued in full throttle this year, and MATTE was at the center of the action. Working with 9 clients to execute 36 events across the week, this year's Basel was our busiest yet. Below, a recap of what the week through the MATTE lens.

ARTSY

Artsy, Gucci and SoundCloud partnered up to construct a psychedelic event - titled Collective Reality - that was held inside the Faena Hotel’s “Time Capsule” dome.

Curated by Elena Soboleva, Artsy’s Curator of Special Projects, guests were immersed in a full sensory art experience filled with music and colorful projections of artworks and nature.

SOHO HOUSE

As a content partner, MATTE provided coverage for Soho House Miami  during the action-packed week. We even threw our first ever "A Party" event outside New York at the hotel which featured melodic talents:  Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, ThugFucker, Sofi Tukker, Joakim and Nala.

PERRIER-JOUËT

Perrier-Jouët celebrated the opening night of L'Eden by Perrier-Jouët in collaboration with Vanity Fair at Casa Faena. The pop up featured a theatrical performance created by Simon Hammerstein (owner of The Box nightclub) and wowed guests when Sarah Jessica Parker took the stage reciting a love poem by W.H. Auden.

Miles away at the Miami International Airport was another floral-inspired construct of Perrier-Jouët named Garden Of Wonder - A whimsical immersive pop-up experience exploring the connection between the environment and art.

- a bar, dancehall and an art gallery rolled into one - bridging the gap between contemporary art, culture, and music.

PUNCH DRUNK ACTIVATION AT FAENA BAZAAR

Tucked inside a velvet draped room in the Faena Bazaar was a stunning virtual reality art piece by Punchdrunk international.

Through the use of Samsung' Gear VR (powered by Oculus), Punchdrunk took story telling to another level with an experience that fully engages all the senses. 

THE EDITION HOTEL

From the fashion-focused Paper Mag x H&M event to the BASEMENT nightclub's second anniversary "Pink Party", much was celebrated at The Miami Beach EDITION and MATTE was there to capture it all— not to mention the party we threw at the BASEMENT featuring DJ Harvey.
