The inaugural weekend will take place November 30 to December 2, 2018 just before Art Basel Miami Beach, one of the most significant destination art fairs in the world.
Founded by gallerist Sarah Gavlak, the weekend formalizes the fact that major collectors typically spend the week before the ABMB in Palm Beach and host lavishly during that time. Led by Gavlak and an Advisory Board that includes Beth Rudin DeWoody, Amy Phelan, Franklin Sirmans and other prominent leaders in the industry, New Wave Art Wknd’s mission is to foster a dialogue in the burgeoning contemporary art community in Palm Beach, while also addressing critical issues of our time that artists so eloquently address. Main topics for 2018 will include diversity and immigration.
The invited guests of seasoned collectors, numbering no more than a few dozen, will be feted with lunches, dinners and programming dedicated to lively and provocative dialogue about the future of culture.
The itinerary includes private tours of prominent contemporary collectors’ homes in the area, including Jane Holzer and Lisa and Richard Perry. The weekend’s highlight will be the opening of The Bunker Artspace: Collection of Beth Rudin DeWoody. For the 2018 installation, viewers will have the opportunity to discover new curations, while revisiting others preserved from the past year. Artist E.V. Day and White Cube’s New York Artistic Director, Eric Shiner, will each co-curate a room with Beth Rudin DeWoody.
There will also be a public programming component featuring panel discussions, lectures and the opening of a public art project in West Palm Beach curated by Yvonne Force Villareal & Doreen Remen.
