Faena Art Gala Wows With Garden of Earthly Delights Theme

On May 10, Faena Art hosted its annual fundraising gala at Faena Forum in Miami Beach. The theme for this year’s event, “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” dazzled more than 500 attendees with a fusion of live music, roller dancing, and artful culinary presentations. Renowned chefs Francis Mallmann, Paul Qui, and Frederic Monnet led the charge with a monumental food installation, including a 500-pound bluefin tuna served as sashimi, hand rolls, and donburi bowls. Guests, adorned in “Funktastique” attire, were greeted by Miranda Makaroff’s abstract photo backdrop and immersed in a fantastical world.

The event showcased the works of prominent artists such as Carlos Betancourt, Cornelius Tulloch, and Suzi Analogue. Notable attendees included Jimmy Rip, Adam Weitsman, Sebastian ErraZuriz, Edgardo and Ana Cristina Defortuna, and Karen Grimson. Alan Faena's opening remarks were followed by Cielo Tejido”s vibrant installation, leading into a roller-disco by artist duo 'assume vivid astro focus' with performances by the Griffin Brothers and DJ sets from Amanda Portillo and Sabina Sciubba.
