Each year, in celebration of Art Basel Miami Beach, The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University hosts Breakfast in the Park. This event draws hundreds of art enthusiasts, patrons, collectors, gallery owners and artists from around the world, many of whom are visiting Miami for Art Basel. Each year a noted sculptor is invited to speak. Guests enjoy a complimentary outdoor breakfast, informal lecture and guided tours of The Sculpture Park as well as the exhibitions in The Frost Art Museum.
This year’s guest speaker is Daniel Arsham, a contemporary American artist whose work blurs the lines between art, architecture and performance. He explores issues such as natural-versus-manufactured and intention-versus-happenstance. Arsham’s work has been shown at PS1 in New York, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, the MCA Chicago, Athens Biennial in Greece, The New Museum in New York, Mills College Art Museum in Oakland, California and Carré d’Art de Nîmes, France among others. Daniel Arsham’s artistic practice includes commissioned public art, performance and architectural projects including several high profile collaborations with choreographer Merce Cunningham, Producer Pharrell Williams, Dior Homme, Jonah Bokaer and Designer Hedi Slimane.
The Sculpture Park at Florida International University includes a variety of artistic styles and movements situated throughout 26 acres of lush, subtropical landscape: Abstract-Expressionism, Constructivism, Minimalism, Conceptualism, Earthworks, and Kinetic Art. Forty-four works include sculptures by John Henry, Linda Howard, Alexander Liberman, Barbara Neijna, Michele Oka Doner, Joel Perlman, Robert Thiele, Steve Tobin and Arnold Zimmerman.
