Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) welcomed new Contemporaries members to the group at the highly-anticipated Friendraiser on Thursday, June 27, the first official PAMM event. The party took place bayside at the Standard Miami Beach and featured an exclusive DJ set by Los Jaichackers, a Los Angeles- and Phoenix-based multimedia art collaborative. Attendees were also privy to a performative intervention by Los Jaichackers, who were in Miami collecting audio and video material in preparation for a major performance that will debut at PAMM’s December opening. This project will be part of PAMM’s official Miami Art Week/Art Basel Miami Beach celebration. Guests enjoyed sips by Belvedere Vodka, Peroni Nastro Azzurro and Société Perrier. Notable guests included: Daniel and Marcella Novela, Leann Standish, Daniela Frewa, Ginger Harris, Alex Horn, Zubin Nagpal, Diana Nawi and Aileen Quintana, to name a few.
Pérez Art Museum Miami’s new, state-of-the-art facility, now under construction in downtown Miami’s Museum Park alongside Biscayne Bay, is designed by world renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron and features 200,000 square feet of programmable space.
