Last night, the first members of the AM crew flew into Miami for our coverage for Art Basel Week and what greeted us was the opening bash at Emmanuel Perrotin. The night’s exclusive events included cocktails, a fabulously catered dinner, an outdoor dance floor where the guests got down for the festivities. Of course the art was the draw as the gallery space opened a new series of shows including the unveiling of the new “tank chairs” from Pharrell Williams, as well as solo shows from Matthew Day Jackson and Bernard Frize and a group show by French artists Lionel Esteve, Kolkoz, Xavier Veilhan, Daniel Firman, Mathieu Mercier and Ivan Argote.
Other notables on hand to take in the festivities were Jose Parla, KAWS, Tomokazu Matsuyama, and of course Pharrell and N.E.R.D. Enjoy the pics after the jump of what was a great start to Art Basel where the mood seem more light and optimistic this year.
