Last night, Italian fashion house Gucci helped sponsor an Art Basel Miami event with Artsy, an e-commerce art platform that spotlights rising talent, as part of a yearlong partnership between the two. Given that Alessandro Michele’s vision for the brand draws heavily on youth culture and the arts, the partnership could not be more fitting.
The VIP event, dubbed Artsy Projects Miami, was staged at the Bath Club and was attended by ASAP Rocky, Dev Hynes and Ana Kras, buzzy poet Rupi Kaur, front row staple James Goldstein, Chloe Wise, and more.
The immersive installation saw performances from NYC-based performance collective Fluct, Samara Golden, Jillian Mayer, and Maria Nepomuceno. The intention was to “explores the tension of today’s culture and provides a platform for the artists to explore new aspects of their practice, allowing viewers to step inside the minds of the artists.” During the evening, Hynes also performed on the piano.
