6 Locust Projects Presents: The Billboard Project
"Internationally renowned artist Liam Gillick has be commissioned to produce artwork for billboards and bus shelters 
surrounding Miami’s Design District and Miami Beach.
Gillick examines how the built world carries traces of social, economic, and political systems through a broad range of 
disciplines including object-based installations and published texts. Conceived specifically for Miami, La aparente union 
del cielo y la tierra (The apparent junction of earth and sky), 2010 presents a series of abstracted works in which Gillick 
invokes the horizon, a space where viewers can reflect and discuss how the built environment structures and patterns 
everyday lives."

7 Jennifer Rubell at Rubell Family Collection 95 Northwest 29th Street
"For Art Basel, Ms. Rubell is hosting a breakfast at the Rubell Family Collection titled “Just Right,” engineered to wow 
finicky creatives. To score their meal, guests must squeeze through a jagged hole in the courtyard wall and wander through 
an overgrown field to an empty house. There, they will find a buffet installation: thousands of bowls and pedestals of 
porridge, brown sugar, raisins and milk. It’ll be the hottest brunch spot in town." - New York Times
Dec. 1 to 5; 9 a.m. to noon.

12 + 13 Friends With You: Rainbow City + Building Blocks 
Rainbow City 3800 NE 1 Avenue
"Rainbow City is an environmental installation addressing the potency of interaction, ritual, and play. Inspired by Holi, a 
festival effectuated by Hindu followers throwing brightly colored water and powder at each other, FriendsWithYou presents a 
vibrant collection of mutable, air-filled sculptures. Fabricated of intensely colored and receptive materials, the 
installation encourages visitors to be active and explore – subsequently, inventing their own ritual. Rainbow City invites 
spectators to participate with a responsive environment, offering an opportunity to connect physically and psychologically 
with an energetic, yet ephemeral, setting."
Building Blocks 3930 NE 2nd Avenue
"OHWOW is proud to present FriendsWithYou's Building Blocks – a collection of paintings, over a decade in the making. Known 
for their reductive approach to geometric abstraction and playful imagery, Building Blocks introduces a series of 
paintings, executed in the artists’ customary style."
