We have received the green light to host #Rank Miami, taking place during the Miami art fairs this December 1-4. Building on the ideas and energy of the #Class events last winter (if you don’t know what we’re talking about seeÂ our previous project statement for #class) we will host three days of non-gala events, non-curated performances and non-hierarchical discussions on the topic of the class structures of the art world, with a super-special focus on the art fair experience. Events will be held atÂ Ed Winkleman’s space at SEVEN, in the Wynwood district of Miami (more info soon at www.seven-miami.com). #Rank Miami will be just three short days, but we’re going to cram as much art fair antimatter in there as possible.
So, tell us what you’d like to do! It can be a discussion topic you’d like to discuss, a performance you’d like to perform, or something more uncategorizable about the infuriating (or perhaps you find them delightful, we’re open to that) hierarchies within or outside of the art world. Think in terms of an hour or so, with minimal amenities. This is completely D-I-Y. Your presence in Miami might not be necessary, depending on the idea, but you will need to somehow make whatever it isÂ happen.
We have time for about 15 events, maybe a few more. The last thing we want to do is curate this, that’s not really in the spirit of #Class. If we receive more proposals than we have time, we will figure out some way to narrow it down. This may involve chance, or voting, critical analysis by the public, or does anyone have any other suggestions?
Send us your ideas as soon as you can, no later than October 10! We will get back to you ASAP, we know you gotta make plans.
Please spread the word and forward this invitation to any other people you think may be interested in participating, especially if they live in the Miami area. We are seeking local talent!
