Taking over the entirety of a retro, Miami Vice-style dive hotel in South Beach this December will be SATELLITE Art Show: four stories of repurposed hotel rooms and lobby space packed with immersive, experiential, often-participatory exhibitions and programming. SATELLITE, now in its second year but its first in the new location and format, is an artist-run and concept-driven alternative art fair that positions itself at the confluence of art, music, performance, new media, and technology.
Offerings include a 800-gallon cereal bowl performance installation from Jen and Paul; a queer strip club orchestrated by a Juilliard-trained ballet dancer; two virtual reality lounges; a fully functional post-feminist tattoo parlor; a performance art space with nonstop programming; and nightly after-hours entertainment in SATELLITE’s onsite Pérez Art Museum Miami Contemporaries Penthouse (curated by Queens, NY outsider music venue Trans-Pecos).
Through a regard for collectability but an emphasis on interactivity and unfiltered creative expression, SATELLITE Art Show aims not to compete with its sister satellite fairs but to differentiate itself as the most memorable art-viewing experience visitors will have all week.
