MUSEUM OF ART AND DESIGN AT MDC PRESENTS RAFAEL DOMENECH: ESTUARY [PAVILION for MOAD]

The exhibition will remain on view through January 2023. Free and open to the public with Miami Book Fair admission.

Estuary is the second iteration of MOAD Projects, series of exhibitions that features work by Miami-based artists, including distinguished MDC and New World School of the Arts alumni and faculty. The project is curated by Isabela Villanueva. Commissioned by MOAD, it functions on multiple levels—as a public sculpture, a reflection on the written word, a platform for live performances and public gatherings, and a meditative environment. It is made from everyday construction materials, such as aluminum framing, and can mutate into a variety of distinct spatial configurations. Large panels or “pages” of construction mesh feature laser-cut texts that will change throughout the duration of the project.

Dates: Nov. 18, 2022 – January 2023

The theme of dualism threads through two portraits by pop icon Andy Warhol, both commissioned decades ago by Craig Robin’s mother and Jackie Soffer’s mother separately, acting as a spectacular coincidence. The multifaceted Collection also features design pieces by the recently acquired Sasha Gordon and by established favorites such as Zaha Hadid, Jean Prouvé, Marc Newson and Maarten Baas.

The contributors to 100 Years, who include Refik Anadol, Theaster Gates, Douglas Gordon, Urs Fischer, Tom Friedman, Austin Lee, Jamian Juliano Villani, Rick Lowe, Keiichi Tanaami, and Taryn Simon, among others, recognize the critical nature of the titular period, sloughing off a sense of weariness with time itself to consider past and future with new optimism.

Is Miami the Center of Crypto?

Much thanks to Mayor Francis Suarez, Miami has become a hub for the crypto community according to Brock Pierce who credits it to Florida’s good weather and low taxes.

It’s no surprise that the city hosted the world’s largest bitcoin conference that attracted 30,000 to 50,000 visitors at the Miami Beach Convention Center this past week.

With almost 50k visitors, there was a lot of engagement at the convention on South Beach, so 360 spoke with the Head of Developer Relations at MobileCoin, Collin Lowenberg to get the inside scoop on what we missed.

Q: Collin, what was the most exciting thing to happen at the conference?

A: Peter Thiel said Bitcoin will go up 100x, the government will never be in control and banks are swiftly going bankrupt. Thiel even tossed a bunch of $100 bills into the crowd. Don’t forget he was a White House advisor and is the largest shareholder in Palantir.

Q: Do you agree with him? 

A: No, I think his anti-bank anti-traditional banking anarchist thing is off balance. Chill out bro.

Q: What else happened at the conference?

A: Everything that happened around the conference was more interesting than inside the conference. I didn’t really need a badge or ticket to attend the event, it just wasn’t worth it. All the major players had their own events. Ledger, SFOX, Monero, Crypto week was bigger than just Bitcoin Miami. There were several side conferences including Shitcoin conference, kadena conference.

Speaking of the other conferences, we spoke with Mack Rivkin, Co-Founder and CBDO of Flake DAO about Miami NFT and how he got into the space.

Q: How did you get into NFTs?

A: I got into NFTs for the first time this year when I was asked to collaborate with my comrade Mike Brooks with his business, Flake DAO, we have been working on that since the beginning of the year. Since then, I have been collecting a lot. And I’ve been running a company that is helping artists. Prior to that I’ve been in the web3 space as an investor since 2016.

Q: Prior to Web3, what is your background?

A: My day job is in the marketing field, more specifically growth and performance marketing working for pikeman and Cheesecake Factory, tech startups, freelance and consultation. My background, though, is in theater. I have been running a lot of underground events, like warehouse parties, popups, fundraisers and festivals. A lot the work transpired through my burning man crew, especially with the web3 space. I got into web3 events through [my friend] Shannon O’Donnell who needed help with her event at ETH Denver and we’ve pulled off some pretty cool activations since.

Q: You said you spoke on a panel at NFT Miami?

A: The panel was called Just DAO it. It was a panel of people of varying levels of perspectives and experience regarding DAOs. My partner Mike Brooks and I were on this panel with 3 others, not including the moderator. We were interviewed by a woman from Tron Network. We talked about who we are and our relationship to DAOs.

Q: Where are DAO’s heading?

A: I don’t know. DAO’s heading, in my opinion, are highly idealistic. It’s a system of governance, idealistic like true decentralization. It’s arguable as to whether or not if we’ll ever have a process that is truly decentralized, as long as humans are involved, because humans by nature are imperfect. We are not robots. But what we can do is leverage a lot of new technologies like Discord for bringing people together from all around the world. Organizing the space into rooms where people can have varied discussions by people or bots.

Speaking of bots, there are so many ways that bots can be used to automate these communities. Bots can be used to automate the DAOs and voting. When DAOs are first being formed it recovers a lot of oversight. Its highly centralized. The goal down the road is to build something highly decentralized. Movement DAO is one of the strongest corporations that I’ve seen in terms of how they run. They’ve got a lot of amazing systems in place, and they figured out a way to prioritize decentralization. But honestly, 99% of DAOs is so far off from the ideal and that includes ours. One think that is important to keep in mind is nothing is going to be perfect right away.

Q: Were you able to attend any exhibits?

A: I hit up every vendor booth I could. The conference hall wasn’t that large. In terms of panelists I saw Eric Lapoglia, he’s the one who put everything together, and Mark Cuban.

Q: Did Mark Cuban speak on anything specific?

A: I left midway through his talk because I was not impressed. He was one of the headliners. Web3 is a revolution. That’s my belief and why I’m so excited to be in the space. I believe so strongly in decentralization because our systems, our financial system specifically, is not working for us, I mean the majority of us. The wealth gap is widening every year and it’s sickening we are losing power everyday.

Regarding Mark Cuban, I didn’t know a ton about him outside of shark tank. I have a lot of respect for the guy, and I appreciate when public figures vouch so heavily for web3, it brings a lot of necessary momentum for web3. But, I think the reason he is involved is to make himself wealtheir. I got that impression because the topic he was giving wasn’t about providing value to the people, it was about promoting his new app. So, putting more money in his pocket. And there’s a reason he got to where he is. He’s a salesman. No judgment, but not my vibe. It’s not why I’m in the space.

It’s not just a criticism with him, but a lot of folks in the space. A lot of people are in crypto and in NFTs because they want to get rich. There’s nothing wrong with that, but a lot of times people don’t understand the importance of what’s happening here. We have the tools to revolutionize how we operate in terms of how we operate, like global trade, and politics and put more power in the hands of people like you and me. It’s not a get rich scheme. Outsiders feel like it’s a pyramid scheme. It’s because of the people who shout the loudest are doing that. But for me it is about community and redefining our place in the world.

Q: Are you hopeful that these tools will be used to revolutionize the system?

A: I have a very strong point of view. I have two options, I have a strong point of view and either A) I can try as hard as I can to be a part of the movement and educate people on my point of view and why I think this is so important to get involved in and find the people I am aligned with and gather that momentum and I could be part of that or B) I could sit idly by and let things ride its course. Right now, I am taking path A. I do have hope and see that things are moving in a positive direction.

Just in the past 5 years headlines regarding crypto and NFTs are gaining a lot of attention. The government is now talking about things like this, talking about bitcoins and Ethereum. We have a country, El Salvador, is building a city built entirely on bitcoin. We are heading in a direction. The world is not black or white. It’s not a bad direction, but it’s a direction. I have my beliefs, but they are my beliefs. I am a cis white American man and that impacts my experience in the space. Bridging gaps is always something I have been very passionate about. I’m trying to create systems that are accessible and equitable for everyone. My focus right now is artists. I’ve been focused on creating opportunities for artists for a long time.

After talking with both Collin and Mack, it seems as though there is a stark difference between the conference and those throwing their own surrounding events. Those who want to uphold the status quo and those who want to dismantle it with a crypto revolution. Which side are you on?

“SKIN IN THE GAME ART TALK & BRUNCH”

CADILLAC HOTEL & BEACH CLUB HOSTED ART TALK AND BRUNCH DURING MIAMI ART WEEK, CELEBRATING “SKIN IN THE GAME” EXHIBIT  

MODERATED BY ZOE LUKOV AND BEN LEE RITCHIE HANDLER, PANEL FEATURED ARTISTS ISABELLE ALBUQERQUE AND RAUL DE NIEVES

Independent curator Zoe Lukov and Ben Lee Ritchie Handler, Global Director of Nicodim Gallery moderated a spirited, invitation-only panel discussion during Miami Art Week at iconic oceanfront property Cadillac Hotel & Beach Club, located at 3925 Collins Avenue.

Artists Isabelle Albuquerque and Raúl de Nieves participated in a candid conversation about their inspirations, artistic processes, and techniques over brunch at the Art Deco waterfront hotel on Friday, December 3. The private event was in celebration of “Skin in the Game,” an exhibition of work by 35 diverse artists, curated by Lukov, about touch, transmission, and skin – the potential, vulnerability and contained therein — as a boundary to protect from danger or as a porous border to receive.

In attendance were Nicodim Gallery owner Mihai Nicodim; Desert X President and Founder Susan Davis; Desert X Artistic Director Neville Wakefield; artists Devin B. Johnson, Alicia Adamerovich, Nicolette Mishkan, Orlando Estrada, and Allison Eden; interior designer and celebrity chef Travis London; gallerist Ana Cristea; art collector Walid Wahab; philanthropist Jenni Coba; and actress and model Celesta Hodge, among others.

“Artists create channels to the divine, that take us to another level,” said Lukov, in conversation with the panel. Nicodim Gallery’s Handler commented on “the performance and ritual of making the magic” [of art], adding cheekily, “What I like about this exhibition is that it’s not afraid to be a little dirty.” Artist Isabelle Albuquerque, a Los Angeles-based sculptor and performer, spoke of “sculpture as a memory,” a vehicle “to remember what an experience feels like.” Raúl de Nieves, a New York-based interdisciplinary artist, performer, and musician, likened art to “a celebratory skin” that provides “something to believe in, to manifest the strength within us.”

ABOUT SKIN IN THE GAME

Skin in the Game, an exhibition of work by 35 diverse artists, curated by Zoe Lukov and presented by Palm Heights, is a collective offering. The exhibition is about touch, transmission, and skin—the potential, vulnerability and risk contained therein—as a boundary to protect from danger or as a porous border to receive. It seeks to establish a dialogue with the erotic and has through lines that touch on game, color, race, the hunt, sport, religious iconography and competition. The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will be on view from November 29 – December 10, 2021.

ABOUT ISABELLE ALBUQUERQUE

Isabelle Albuquerque is a Los Angeles-based sculptor and performer. In Orgy for 10 People in One Body, her current project, Albuquerque casts and 3D scans her own body to create ten headless, human-scaled figures that unpack deeply personal and poetic moments from her life set against history, myth, and wider contemporary socio-political movements. The work explores emergent systems of intrapersonal communion from outside the body, invoking collective identity, transhumanism, plurality, love, loss of self, relocation of memory, pleasure, and power. Sextet, Albuquerque’s critically acclaimed first solo exhibition with Nicodim, opened in September of 2020 with six sculptures from the series. Recent exhibitions include The Emerald Tablet, Jeffrey Deitch, Los Angeles (2021); Nuestrxs Putxs, Human Resources, Los Angeles (2021); PAPA RAGAZZE!, Nicodim Upstairs, Los Angeles (2021); When You Waked Up the Buffalo, Nicodim Los Angeles (2020); Hollywood Babylon: A Re-Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, Jeffrey Deitch, Nicodim, and AUTRE Magazine, Los Angeles (2020); and Skin Stealers, Nicodim Los Angeles (2019). Her work will be featured in the upcoming “Skin in the Game” exhibit, curated by Zoe Lukov in Miami Beach, FL, from November 29 to December 10, 2021.

House of One Q×A

Brittany Farinas fiercely and fashionably has entered the world of interior design. The designer of both residential and commercial spaces resides in South Florida, where she launched her company, House of One. After graduating from the University of Miami with a degree in interior design, Farinas utilized her life-long passion to help others beautify their spaces. Streamlined, sleek, and polished, Farinas has an impeccable eye for style that makes her stand out. 360 Magazine spoke with the designer about her favorite interior aesthetics, House of One’s recent blog launch, and upcoming projects.

When did you first get into designing residential and commercial spaces?

About four years ago.

What type of look does House of One try to imbue in its clients spaces?

I try to make each of my client’s spaces very much a reflection of who they are, while creating a visually exciting yet timeless look. At House of One, we strive on creating unique spaces with bold moments.

How would you describe your personal favorite interior aesthetic?

My personal design aesthetic is minimal eclectic. I love sculptural elements in a space and I have a great appreciation for luxurious textures. When it comes to designing an interior space for myself- I like to neutralize the primary pieces (larger furniture items such as sofas, tables, cabinetry) and add character in secondary pieces (i.e accent chairs, pillows, accessories, accent lighting).

What visual design software does House of One utilize?

We use AutoCAD, SketchUp, and multiple rendering softwares.

What is the most important thing to consider when designing an interior space?

The most important thing to consider when designing spaces for our clients is to envision exactly how they will use their space daily and how the space will evolve through time.

 How does designing a residential space differ from designing a commercial space?

When designing a commercial space, it’s about promoting the brand image and creating a setting for productivity and growth for the company as a whole. It’s necessary to be conscious of how multiple groups of people might be using the space- whereas designing for a residential client is more specific and lifestyle driven. While designing residential and commercial spaces are targeted towards a different end goal, both need to be extremely functional while aesthetically pleasing.

On your website, I saw that you are launching a blog. That is so exciting! What type of content will be published on House of One’s blogspace?

Yes! I am extremely excited about the blog as well. This will be a place where I can elaborate more on the projects in different categories. For example, we will have a section labeled “Project Tours” where you will be able to get an in depth look at some of our recently completed work. I’ll also be featuring posts on different trends, and a behind the scenes look of our design process.

Where do you find interior design inspiration?

I find inspiration everywhere I go. However, I’ve always been inspired by fashion. When I go eat at restaurants I can’t help but touch the different fabrics and materials. I have always been so curious that way.

Did you always have an eye for detail, or are there ways in which you’ve sharped your interior design vision over time?

I would say I’ve always had an eye for detail. My mom worked at a furniture store when I was about the age of 3-15. I spent a lot of days with her hanging around the showroom. I always gravitated towards certain colors/details. At a young age I was very opinionated about what I liked and didn’t like when it came to design. Over time, I feel my eye for design has definitely evolved, and I know it will keep doing so over time. I think it’s just a part of life and growing as a person and designer.

Are there any exciting projects coming up for House of One that you can speak about?

Yes! We’re currently working on a 8500 square-foot office space that we’re all really excited about- the palette is gorgeous. We’ve also been working on restoring a Mediterranean home in Miami Beach, which will be completed in about two months. This project is very special for us, and we’re excited to get this one styled and photographed soon.

MIAMI’S ECO-ADVENTURE PARK AND RESORT

ESJ CAPITAL PARTNERS TO DEVELOP SOUTH FLORIDA’S FIRST-EVER TRUE ECO-ADVENTURE PARK AND RESORT IN MIAMI

Opening in 2022, the $300 million re-imagined “Jungle Island” will feature a thrilling aerial adventure course with zip lines, up-close animal encounters, water attractions, one-of-a-kind entertainment and nightlife, and a new hotel, just minutes from downtown Miami and Miami Beach.

ESJ Capital Partners (hereinafter: ‘ESJ”), an Aventura, Florida-based commercial real estate firm and a registered Investment Advisor, has secured the final approvals necessary to move forward with developing a one-of-a-kind eco-adventure destination and hotel on 18.5 acres of prime waterfront in Miami.

The $300 million project is an ambitious re-imagining of the historic “Jungle Island,” a zoological theme park and botanical gardens built in 1936 that once boasted the largest and rarest collection of exotic animals and birds. It is located on Watson Island, roughly five minutes from both downtown Miami and the world-renowned South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach, surrounded by the crystal blue waters of Biscayne Bay.

Inspired by some of the world’s most successful eco-adventure destinations and conceived by a team of the top hospitality/nature attraction experts, ESJ’s master-plan for redevelopment of the park caters to the 21st-century guest, while still preserving historic elements that has made the Jungle Island experience a favorite landmark for nearly a century – including an unparalleled collection of over 50 parrot species in its multi-story aviary.

Set to re-open in mid-2022 as “Jungle Island: Miami’s Adventure Oasis,” the redesigned park will include the only aerial adventure course in South Florida featuring zip lines, ropes courses, bridges, and climbing nets suspended up to 60-feet in the treetops; a 19,000-square-foot trampoline park; interactive and hands-on animal nature tours that allow guests to get up-close and personal with over 100 species of wild animals, such as swimming with capybaras; a 1,200-seat outdoor amphitheater with new and unique, family- friendly entertainment featuring aerialists and acrobats; elevated dining and nightlife experiences; a Mediterranean-style beach club and cocktail lounge on Miami’s only private beach; and several water features including a new 900-foot “lazy river”  that meanders through the park’s lush green and animal habitats.

A key component of the park will be a new 300-key, family-friendly eco-resort, scheduled to open in late 2024 or early 2025.

Based on market research, ESJ expects to draw more than 500,000 guests during its first year of operation, comprising a 50-50 mix of both local/domestic visitors and out-of-market travelers.

“Florida is finally getting its first true eco-adventure park, where nature and wildlife provide inspiration for guests to explore, play, challenge themselves physically, or simply relax,” said Arnaud Sitbon, CEO of ESJ. “Best of all, it’s going to be in a city that is one of the world’s top-rated travel destinations, just minutes from Miami’s top-rated beaches and attractions. It’s a privilege to have the honor of breathing new life into this much-beloved landmark, and our hope is that it will spark appreciation and respect for nature and our planet’s precious wildlife.”

“A nature-oriented destination of this magnitude in the heart of Miami’s urban core is truly remarkable,” said Micha Dubernard, Senior Vice President of ESJ Capital Partners. “In addition to providing a unique attraction that enhances Miami’s reputation for tourism and culture, Jungle Island’s lush habitat will also serve an important ecological role by helping absorb some of the city’s carbon emissions and serving as a natural preserve for Florida’s wading birds and other wildlife.”

According to the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB), there is substantial demand for this type of venue.  “We are extremely pleased to add such a compelling attraction to our community,” said William D. Talbert III, President & CEO of the GMCVB.  “We look forward to continue working with the Jungle Island team.”

In 2019, Greater Miami attracted a record-breaking 16.3 million overnight visitors and an additional 7.9 million day tripper, for a record number of 24.2 million total visitors with a total economic impact close to $18 billion, according to the GMCVB. Industry experts expect Miami’s hospitality and tourism industry to recover steadily over the next year, in conjunction with COVID-19 vaccine roll outs.

In addition to the adventure park and nature attractions, Jungle Island will also feature a strong corporate appeal, with more than 10 indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, catering to small or large groups, and ranging from small celebrations to 1000+-person gatherings.

ESJ acquired Jungle Island in April 2017, which involved the transfer of the existing land lease on the City of Miami-owned Watson Island to ESJ.  In August 2018, Miami voters approved a city charter amendment to waive competitive bidding and allow ESJ to modify Jungle Island’s lease and allow the construction of a 300-room hotel. In February 2021, the City of Miami provided final approval on a long-awaited land-use ordinance change and special area plan, both necessary to redevelop the 18-acre property with a hotel and additional recreation amenities. ESJ plans to begin construction on the new adventure park this summer, and will break ground on the new $100+ million hotel in 2022, pending a final building permit.

To lead Jungle Island’s transformation, ESJ has pulled in some of the world’s leading hospitality, attraction, entertainment and construction experts. These include IDEAS Brand & Experience Design, led by 25-year Disney executive Bob Allen; HKS Architects, an interdisciplinary global design firm which recently completed Royal Caribbean’s $250 million redevelopment of CocoCay Island; EoAan award-winning design firm; Gardiner & Theobald, an independent construction and property consultancy noted for its development of Miami’s acclaimed Faena District and the $4 billion Baha Mar resort in the Bahamas, the largest resort development in the Western Hemisphere; and several additional specialists in the field of animal entertainment and education.
