Vanity Fair Party at MOCA

So, night two of the Pre-Basel events we attended the Vanity Fair Party at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami.

The party coincided with the opening of Bruce Webber's Haiti/Little Haiti - a series of photos of Miami's Haitian community in response to the U.S. immigration system in which Haitian citizens were detained indefinitely unlike refugees from other countries who were usually released to family or friends while awaiting asylum hearings.  

It also featured sculpture by Johnathan Meese, which are essentially "frozen surrogates" for Meese.  Against the opinion of a very sweet elderly named Myrtle, who was convinced that Johnathan Meese is a "Sicko" because of the abundance of male genitalia, we all really liked the work.

We left MOCA and made a stop at "Cheese Me", one of Miami's most talked about food trucks.  There is definite reason for the buzz.  The sandwiches were amazing!

The night continued with an after party thrown by the MOCA Shakers Bardot just a couple of blocks away from us in Midtown with music by AGAPE featuring Nadia Harris, who has an absolutely yummy voice even when she talks.  

Great time all around!

Some of the pics are by us, some are thanks to Llmar Saar.
