Art Basel | Mana Wynwood
While art dominates Miami during Art Basel week for obvious reasons, it is also becoming one of the most exciting times to catch live performances all year. Music and art collided at Mana Wynwood during Art Basel 2013. DJPeoples, Flaunt Magazine, 3P Production; the team behind the III Points Music Festival, and Mana Wynwood; the largest multipurpose production studio located in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District, played host and provided production to a 4 night concert series. The week kicked off with a private performance by superstar rap artist Kendrick Lamar and an eye catching mural project titled Shoot for the Moon. The one of a kind soundstage was transformed into an indoor garden oasis fittingly called the Sound Garden. Darkside, the collaborative duo of electronic producer Nicolas Jaar and guitarist Dave Harrington premiered their debut album, “Psychic” while a breath taking installation from Children of the Lights displayed. The event was booming with incredible art and music, including the one and only Boy George who played his first live performance in 10 years. The larger than life Mana Wynwood location was the perfect back drop for the out of this world event. The week ended with an all day party from the famous team of Fools Gold with performances from A Track and Miami’s own Trick Daddy. Every night was a new experience with heavy hitting stages, sublime light effects, amazing sound, and extraordinary art installations.
