As if it weren’t enough that Miami is flooded with priceless art, worldly travelers and fabulous parties for the rest of the week, Max Fish is bringing some of that colorful, electric New York vibe to Miami as well. In celebration of the bar’s 20-year anniversary, Aaron Bondaroff, Al Moran and Ulli Rimkus (aka O.H.W.O.W) are bringing down some of that famous Max Fish electricity to Art Basel Miami Beach.
Since it’s opening on December 2, 1989 the bar has become an Institute for the creative minds and the people of the Lower East Side. Having hosted Mark Gonzales and Shawn Mortensen, the list of creative thinkers who have graced this bar with their presence is endless.
The team will recreate an art installation out of the core elements of the Lower East Side location, into a fully functioning bar space. In the perfect location in downtown Miami, the Max Fish clone is sure to be the prime hangout spot for Art Basel attendees and the creative community during the week. Packed with a full schedule of live bands and dj’s, plus movie screenings in an outdoor space, the bar will also feature artwork by several artists.
Come in for a drink, dance to the music and look at more art from the long list of featured artists. The opening reception starts on December 2, 2009 at six o’clock at the old PS-14 locale.
