Active Ideas Productions and Gallerist Present "Flights of Fancy”

Active Ideas Productions and Gallerist are co-hosting “Flights of Fancy”, a digitally presented art show and VIP dance party in celebration of Art Basel Miami weekend.  The invitation-only event will be held at B Bar, in The Betsy Hotel – South Beach, from 10pm-2am on Saturday December 3.

During this fun and festive celebration, art works suggesting the conceptions of migration, decadence and altered reality will be projected while guests dance to the sounds of DJ Sean Glass (Le Bain/Soho House/Mondrian, NYC).  Guests are encouraged to flock together in their feathered fashions and sequined best as we invite art collectors, dance lovers, music cognoscenti alike to mimic the decadence and color of the projected painting and dance the night away.

Just as birds take wing and begin their migration at the beginning of winter, the art world journeys south each year to celebrate Art Basel Miami. Flights of Fancy will play on the idea of art in the air and the sense of a seasonal artistic migration. Rather than a physical display of individual works on gallery walls, attendees of Flights of Fancy will experience a curated exhibition conducted entirely through technology.  By displaying the works of art through Gallerist’s interactive digital platform and projecting the paintings in a club like environment, the Flights of Fancy digital art show explores the current transition of technology taking art from the wall on to the web.

This virtual exhibit will showcase the works of Ben Blatt, Annika Connor, Shay Kun, and Nicholas Papadakis.  The work will also be available for guests to experience using floating iPads featuring a private virtual gallery provided by Gallerist.
