FREEHAND HOTEL MIAMI BEACH
For a collaborative piece titled IN LIGHT, Meriem Bennani and Hayden Dunham have developed an installation and performance that utilizes the swimming pool of the Freehand Miami hotel.
As in Dunham and Bennani's prior collaborations, including their prior exhibition at SIGNAL, PASTE, IN LIGHT sees the artists combining elements of performance, design, and technology in a hypnotic meditation on light and space.
This one-night event during Art Basel Miami is organized by NEWD ART SHOW and UOVO, presenting site-specific projects by SIGNAL, Brooklyn and METRO PCS, Los Angeles.

ALLISON PARK MIAMI BEACH
In the second iteration of this piece by Monica Mirabile (of performance duo FlucT), a special sunset performance will be staged with 17 dancers on the sands of Miami Beach.
At 4pm a liaison will be stationed in the center circle of Allison Park (beachfront at 65th & Collins). Visitors will be given a pair of headphones and a phone number to call, which will give access to the audio for the performance.
Mirabile's choreography draws upon historical images of martyrdom and transcendence to depict the physical manifestations of being unable to emotionally or intellectually process experience.
Featuring a musical collaboration between Dan Deacon (remix of Hildegard Von Bingen) and Monica Mirabile (collage of Life Sim, Sango and Flume).
The piece begins precisely at 4:30pm.
65th Street + Collins Avenue
