GIANNINA AZAR LAUNCES ‘METALLIC’ LINE

Fashion Designer Giannina Azar Launches New ‘Metallic’ Line in Miami This Sunday Ahead of Art Basel

The Collection Features Stunning Evening Dresses Wrapped in Glitter, Metals and Rhinestones, and is a Collaboration with John Casblancas International Center and Model & Talent Management Agency

She has dressed superstars like J. Lo, Gwen Stefani and Brittney Spears. Her designs have been featured worldwide in Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Forbes. This weekend, just ahead of Art Basel, Miami is getting its first look at “Metallic,” the new high-end line of evening wear from fashion ikon and international designer Giannina Azar.

 “My new ‘Metallic’ collection is avant-garde, modern and opulent, draped in glitter, metals and rhinestones and is designed for today’s modern woman who wants to make a statement,” Azar said. “It highlights true metallic tones, in addition to orange, red and black colors and is a design I am extremely proud of.”

Azar is collaborating once again with Amy Dalli, the president of John Casablancas International Center and Model & Talent Management Agency in Miami. The two previously worked together for Miami Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week and on the premiere of Azar’s swim line that debuted at Miami Swim Week.

“Giannina and I met a few years ago and we immediately formed a special professional relationship based on the mutual standard of excellence in all that we do,” Dalli said. “The new ‘Metallic’ collection includes some of the most exquisite designs I’ve ever seen and proves once again why Giannina is such a trendsetter in this industry. I’m so excited to be working with her again.”

Dalli grew up modeling for John Casablancas and acquired the Miami-based agency in 2018. Her goal is to bring the John Casablancas name back to the level of worldwide notoriety it had in the 1980s and 90s. Collaborating with industry legends like Azar is just one way she’s doing that. The 5,000 square foot MTM center in Doral includes a runway room, two makeup rooms, an acting studio and a photo studio to develop and represent talent starting at the age of five.

BASQUIAT × NFT’s × TRILLER = HISTORY

Triller × The Bishop Gallery: Triller brings The Bishop Gallery to Miami and disrupts Art Basel with Week-Long Basquiat Exhibit and Historic First-Ever Live NFT Auction of Rare Photos of Jean-Michel

Opening on Monday, November 29 through December 4 and located at the new BLK Miami, Triller will upend the event game again. This time at Art Basel with programming to showcase art, music, and now, the explosion of NFT culture.

A significant highlight of the event, and arguably for all of Art Basel, for the first time in Miami, the world will see Basquiat, personally and intimately like never before, with the Our Friend, Jean exhibition curated by The Bishop Gallery and hosted by Triller, a trailblazing, AI-powered global platform. Together they will serve up Miami’s finest at this first-ever physical and digital curated experience that will focus on what’s sure to be a historic NFT auction during a week-long art exhibition of the legendary Neo-expressionist artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Throughout the week, Triller promises extraordinary experiences. The once in a lifetime event will feature digital and physical auctions, celebrity guest speakers, live painting, surprise NFT drops, pop-ups, integrations, live musical performances, first-look opportunities, gallery exhibits with artists like Cory Van Lew, CryptoPunks, and Punk Me Tender, private walk-throughs, live discussions with Basquiat’s long-time friends, along with exclusive VIP events.\

Taking place in Wynwood at BLK Studios, located at 2060 NW 1st Ave, Miami, FL, the event will highlight some of the earliest artworks created by America’s Most Influential Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. His record-breaking sales continue to fascinate the world – and remain influential in the cultural sphere as Tiffany & Co. featured Jay Z and Beyonce posing in front of a never-seen-before canvas for their recent advertising campaign.

Starting Monday, November 29, in partnership with The Bishop Gallery, Triller will host the exclusive experience showing works curated by The Bishop Gallery from Jean-Michel Basquiat. These artworks will be on loan from collectors who knew Jean-Michel as friends, including Alexis Adler, Basquiat’s friend, roommate and Al Diaz, Co-Creator of SAMO©. Their rare photographs collection shines a light on Basquiat’s personal life like never before. They will be sharing their remembrances and untold stories about their friendship with Basquiat throughout the week. Guests can register for an invite for free here.

During the immersive gallery experience, Our Friend Jean, there will be live discussions with Basquiat’s close friends and people who knew him personally. A total of 20 plus works will be displayed, including drawings, writings, apparel, and mixed media collages. The group of collectors consists of Jane Diaz, Hilary Jaeger, Katie Taylor, Lucy Sante, and photographer Alexis Adler who also served as co-curator. Through these works, each collector will be sharing uniquely intimate stories of their friend, Jean.

Happening on Friday, December 3, Our Friend Jean NFT Auction, is an exclusive event of art, music along with a LIVE NFT AUCTION experience. For the first time, an incredible selection of NFT drops featuring rare and personal photos of Basquiat will be available on the Trillernfts.com marketplace with exclusive previews and purchase opportunities onsite. In addition to the auction, there will be several central stage moments, a physical donation of an NFT. The Bishop Gallery chose the TrillerNFT marketplace because the Triller platform has been specifically engineered to minimize the minting process’s computing costs and complexities to reduce the carbon footprint effects.

This partnership signals Triller’s longstanding tradition to celebrate the disruptors and serve as the catalyst for creativity. The increasing popularity of NFTs proves they are indisputably the art vehicle of the future. The artist Beeple‘s sale of his NFT digital collage astounded the world and had global repercussions when it sold for a record-smashing 69 million dollars at Christie’s in March. With this announcement, Triller is poised to be the destination for the most exclusive NFT sales and drops.

After Art Basel, Triller x The Bishop Gallery will present the “Our Friend, Jean: HBCU Tour,” the exhibition will embark on a tour to eight HBCU (Historically Black Colleges/Universities) schools. The tour will kick off in early 2022 and land in eight cities, where Alexis Adler will appear to share the works from the Alexis Adler Archive, featuring works from Basquiat and potential art donations to the schools.

This year will mark an influential time for Triller, as they cap off a year of incredible events within the art and cultural community, allowing both recognized and up-and-coming talent to utilize the platform to present their creativity, whether it be through art or music. Speaking of influence, securing this historic drop will make Triller a lead in the marketplace.

Le Rouge Lounge, Wynwood’s Avante-Garde Nightlife Destination

Le Rouge Lounge crushed its opening weekend with VIP appearances by Diplo & Cuba Gooding Junior and performances by Soul Brothers, Cris Cab & more.

Le Rouge Lounge is Wynwood’s ultimate avant-garde nightlife destination. The 7,000 sq. ft. venue opened June 11 to uproarious success and has taken a new spin on live performance entertainment.

Open Thursday through Saturday from 9 PM through 3 AM, this French-inspired enclave will serve as a destination for national music acts and world-renowned DJs, bringing a next-generation live music venue experience to the city.

Le Rouge Lounge is a meeting place where service is paramount and privacy guaranteed, where beauty in every form is nurtured and the unexpected is to be expected. It provides a luxurious and visually stimulating ambiance, highlighted by its vintage decor, state-of-the-art sound, video, and 3D mapping projection systems.

The lounge will be the first venue in Miami to be centered around a 360-degree DJ “in the round” booth, showcasing a diverse array of performers, DJs, bands, and solo artists in an intimate and upscale setting. It boasts a live stage draped in red velvet, spacious enough to accommodate a 10-piece band.

The opening weekend lineup featured renowned Miami-based artists Cris Cab and Oscar G, the brilliant Mexican duo “The Soul Brothers” and other local artists, followed by Luca Bachetti, Damaged Goods, and Manu Manzo in the following weeks. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Diplo also made an appearance at Le Rouge Lounge’s opening weekend, contributing to its successful debut.

At Le Rouge Lounge, mixology is an art form, with veteran mixologist Samer Abdallah crafting prohibition-era cocktails with an unexpected, modern twist. This intimate and upscale space allows publishers, influencers, decision-makers, movers & shakers to connect; it’s a space where synergies percolate, stars are born, and masterpieces are conceived.

With their dance card already booked with album release parties and city events including Swim Week Miami and Art Basel, Le Rouge Lounge promises to be the Magic City’s hottest destination for live entertainment and private events.

Le Rouge Lounge is located at 318 NW 23rd St. in Miami, FL 33127, and offers valet parking, as well as the largest self-parking lot in Wynwood.

Graffiti and art article illustrated by Gabrielle Archuleta for 360 magazine

Graffiti Art: Hobby, Art, or Political Statement

It is perhaps deliberately that this has been framed as a loaded question, is graffiti art considered to be art? But this takes us directly to the heart of the matter, what constitutes something being art is very truly on the eye of the beholder. But some serious debates are surrounding this topic.

Terminology

The term graffiti itself is problematic. Consider this article about prominent Chicago artist Dont Fret, he is referred to as a street artist. This distinction offers a more constructive spin on the entire artform, as street art is a more creative and acceptable term. You can see how celebrated the artist is from the article as he is lauded by a city official.

Criminality

Should we be considering graffiti, or street art, a crime? Well, technically it is, but only in some circumstances. The crux of the matter comes down to permission. If you paint, draw, or write anything on a surface without permission of the property owner, then by the letter of the law, it would be considered illegal vandalism. Would this result in prosecution in reality? This mainly depends on the owners’ attitude since much of the art is done either with permission or in abandoned spaces, the level of prosecution these days seems to be low in most areas. What of art on publicly owned buildings? This is a subject of hot debate as it brings politics into it (more on that later).

Should we Encourage it?

Is it an art form that should be encouraged? You could encourage young people to use it to express themselves. Take an art class, equip them with some Dang Paint and find an area to let them give it a go. Many art schools and colleges have whole courses on graffiti art as a legitimate medium. Reputation still holds it back for some more conservative folks, but it is steadily gaining momentum as a serious and respected medium.

Part of the City

In many places, grafitti art has become a defining feature of the city and its culture. High-quality street art can be stunningly beautiful and show much of the culture and history of a place when done well. Take the series of stunning murals in Glasgow, Scotland that is now a famous feature that residents and visitors to the city rightly marvel at. 

Politics

Politics often, but not always, plays a big part in street art or graffiti art. Take the world-famous Banksy, no-one even knows who he or she is, but many of the pieces are political, showing a real flavor of social commentary. These pieces have sparked more social debate in the last couple of decades than any traditional artform as they reach ordinary people who would never have considered visiting an art gallery. Other more overtly political examples can be seen in communities with a much more overt political struggle, the murals on display in Northern Irish communities, on both sides, are excellent examples.

Mira Lehr – High Water Mark

At the age of 85, Mira Lehr is hitting a new high water mark in her career with national critical acclaim and a passion for protecting the planet from climate Armageddon. Mira Lehr has been championing environmental action since 1969, decades before others jumped on the climate bandwagon. It was fifty-one years ago that Buckminster Fuller chose Lehr for his groundbreaking World Game project. This was during the first lunar landing and a year before the first Earth Day, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this week on April 22.

Now, on the 50th anniversary of her artistic turning point towards championing the environment, the Mennello Museum of American Art in Orlando has invited Mira Lehr to present a new exhibition with a fateful title: High Water Mark. Since the museum is temporarily closed due to the pandemic, a new series of online initiatives bring Mira’s art to audiences who are staying at home now because of social distancing.

➢ The Mennello Museum is also providing online tools for families while at home with their children during the pandemic, based on Mira Lehr’s exhibition. Parents can visit the museum’s social media channels: facebook.com/MennelloMuseum and instagram.com/mennellomuseum (#YourMennelloMoment).

➢ Lehr is sharing the museum’s virtual tours with her audiences at this new video-tour miralehr.com/high-water-mark-exhibition-videos and at this new gallery photo-tour miralehr.com/exhibition-phototour.

About the Artist

Lehr’s solo and group exhibitions number over 300. She is a graduate of Vassar College (1956) with a degree in Art History, under the mentorship of Linda Nochlin, the feminist art historian. She has been collected by major institutions across the U.S., including the Smithsonian Museum of American Art (Washington), the Getty Museum Research Center (Los Angeles), Perez Art Museum (Miami), and the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center (NY).

Sunreef Yachts × Alexander Mijares

Sunreef Yachts celebrated their collaboration with Miami-based artist Alexander Mijares at Mijares Gallery in Wynwood with a cocktail party followed by a private champagne cruise on the wrapped $3.2 million dollar 70 foot Marquis in Brickell Bay. Sunreef Yachts, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of luxury sailing and power multihulls, was showcased at the Fontainebleau Marina with Mijares’ “Pieces of Me” wrapped around the hull of the 70’ Sunreef Power catamaran from Wednesday, December 4th to Sunday, December 8th. This legendary and custom-made model is designed in detail for the most demanding customers and delivers the best in comfort, style and safety. She boasts luxurious accommodations, vast living spaces, extravagant and innovative design features. This sounds similar to services like bvi yacht charters.
 
“Pieces of me is a painting inspired by feeling protected, as if a guardian angel is with me along my journey” says Mijares. .
 
Miami-born and internationally acclaimed artist Alexander Mijares brings a colorful perspective and injects new life into the art world with his myriad of vibrant works. As a self-taught artist, Mijares finds inspiration in the dynamic energy of both his city of Miami and his Cuban and Spanish roots and creates pieces that are rich in culture. His vision has been recognized both nationally and internationally by some of the most discerning art collectors across the globe. Both Forbes and Elite Daily named Mijares “One of the Top 10 Most Influential Artists” in the US. Mijares has also found inspiration in music; the rising artist collaborated with Pitbull in 2014 during the World Cup, painted the iHeart Radio Station Studio and has created custom pieces for artists like Justin Bieber, Tori Kelly, Pharrell, and Alejandro Sanz; to name a few.
