Life Is Art Joins Multiversal for Art Basel Week 2011
The week of Art Basel Miami Beach is arguably the biggest week for contemporary art in the world. It is certainly the biggest art week in the U.S.A. To best support the south Florida art community, Life Is Art has joined forces with KAZILLA of Multiversal Group and Laura Forero More Than Art Group to produce this very exciting art fair.
The Multiversal Art Fair features both established and emerging names from around the world. Their media spans the fine arts including: live art, paintings, urban art, contemporary mediums, sculpture, animation, photography, body painting, film/video and more. Around all of this will swirl a vortex of aerialists, burlesque and belly dancers, exhibitionists, extemporaneous theater, all to the rhythm of live and recorded music â€“ truly a Multiversal human experience.
The fair is preceded by a number of pre-shows scheduled for throughout October and November. The pre-show series serves as a launch pad for the big fair, a vehicle to showcase more south Florida artists, and a fundraiser to build revenue to make Multiversal the biggest and best it can be.
Life Is Art was founded in January of 2009, specifically to help promote and support the south Florida arts. After producing many dozens of events in just a few short years, from networkers to seminars to art fairs, they have joined the biggest art week of the year. By combining efforts with other organizations, Life Is Art plans to provide even more exposure to the south Florida arts scene.
In its first year, over 4,000 visitor came to the grand gala in Miami’s modern district. Over 10,000 people attended second annual Multiversal Art Fair in 2010, in the heart of Wynwood, Miami’s design district. Fashion shows, music, performance and art abounded. For 2011, the team is planning an even larger spectacle.
This year Multiversal encompasses both indoor and outdoor spaces, including a tented exhibition and outdoor vending and performance arena. With the combined efforts of all three groups, this event is truly going to be a sight for all to see.

The next big pre-show is at Villa 221 on October 8th. Named “Diamond -N- The Ruff”, this event features scores of well known and emerging local artists, performers, exhibitors and DJ’s and serves as an after party for the wildly popular Wynwood Second Saturdays Art Walk. Villa 221 is a large event complex right between Wynwood and Downtown that features several gallery rooms, multiple bar areas and an outdoor patio where our live artists will be at work.
