The Faena Festival Returns
Art Basel is perhaps Miami Beach’s largest and best known art-related event but if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find there is much more going on. This year, for example, the city will welcome the Faena Festival for the second time around.
Unlike Art Basel which focuses on a richly broad array of art in different mediums, the Faena Festival concentrates on spirituality and ritual. This year’s event is being dubbed “The Last Supper” and will bring a host of installations, videos, performances, and commissions depicting topics like religion, food, and more. Some of the names visitors can expect to see include Gabriel Chaile, Zhang Huan, and Myrlande Constant, to name a few.
Speaking of Myrlande Constant, her voodoo flags will adorn the lobby of the upscale Faena Hotel. Zhang Huan’s work will include a pair of buddha sculptures made from incense ash and aluminum, the former expected to be disintegrated on the beach as a symbol of impermanence. Artist Yael Bartana of Israel will showcase her 2013 film Inferno.
There is no cost to attend the Faena Festival which runs from December 2nd through the 8th, coinciding with the Art Basel festivities. The festival will take place across different venues.
