Schedule of VIP Events:
Art Miami Kickoff VIP Cocktails + Dinner
November 12, 2015
As a kickoff to the collaboration with the Fair, Merrill Lynch will host a VIP Screening of the highly acclaimed and brilliant documentary entitled BERNICE, by first time film maker Kristina Sorge.
This short format documentary tells the story of art world pioneer and instigator, Bernice Steinbaum. In this beautifully crafted documentary, Ms. Sorge highlights her subject’s lifelong efforts to support and empower female artists as well as artists of color throughout their careers. The personal obstacles and hardships faced by artists she so staunchly represented were amplified by the racial and gender inequality of the art world especially during the 1970s and 80s.
Tickets for cocktails and the screening of the film at JW Marriott Marquis Miami, will go on sale mid October. An invitation only VIP dinner will follow the screening at db Bistro Moderne.
