For those who have been around 21c since the beginning, you know our pajama parties are legendary. So, to celebrate our 10th year we’ve teamed up with Surface magazine to take our talents on the road for a pajama party during Art Basel Miami Beach.
This year’s iteration will feature performances by The Skins, Narcissister and Joseph Keckler, with DJ sets by Mia Moretti and Devin Lucien. Miami-based artist Karelle Levy will outfit guests with Quickie Couture, including handmade pajamas and accessories. The event will feature street-faire style nosh by James Beard Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein.
Narcissister employs a spectacle-rich approach to explorations of gender, racial identity, and sexuality. Humor, pop songs, elaborate costumes, contemporary dance, and her trademark mask are her tools in deconstructing stereotypical representations. Straddling the worlds of music, art, and performance, Joseph Keckler has garnered acclaim for his rich, versatile 3+ octave voice and sharp wit in his unexpected spin on opera.
When the first 21c Museum Hotel opened 10 years ago, we never envisioned more than one. Today, 21c operates six museum hotels and a diverse portfolio of seven restaurants. 21c Nashville is set to open Spring 2017, and other projects are currently under development in Kansas City, Missouri and Indianapolis, Indiana. In November, the brand announced its plans for 21c Miami, located within HELM Miami’s mixed-use development in the Design District.
And we’re not done yet. Expect to hear more from us in the coming years as we bring today’s most dynamic contemporary art to unique neighborhoods across the U.S. In case you missed it, check out the November issue of Surface Magazine, detailing how 21c is bringing contemporary art to the heartland.
