MegaGlam at Armory Arts Week 2016

NYC/MARCH 1–6, 2015

Once again, we descended upon The Armory Show, known as America’s leading international art fair — and, the many related shows and events including: PULSE, Volta, Scope, Spring/Break and Independent.

MegaGlam launched new work and produced our own curated performance stills at the fairs in collaboration with Karl Heine. We were photographed by many media outlets and individuals, and featured in Gothamist’s coverage of the Spring/Break Art Fair preview. Our wearable work was the medium and the message.

MegaGlam at Armory Arts Week 2015

NYC/MARCH 3–8, 2015

In its seventeenth year, The Armory Show, known as America’s leading fine art fair devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries, has become an international institution, bringing artists, galleries, collectors, critics and curators from all over the world. Over time, many other related shows and events have been launched. This year we attended The Armory Show press conference and preview, PULSE VIP/press preview, Volta NY VIP/press preview, Scope Art Show VIP/press preview, Spring Break and Independent Art Fair.

We launched a variety of new work and produced our own curated performance stills at the fairs, and were photographed by many media outlets and individuals including Gothamist and BazaarTeens who were part of an installation curated by Dustin Yellin at Spring Break. Our wearable work was the medium, and our documentation, as well as that of the press and public became part of each interaction, where we freeze-framed moments of human behavior and later analyzed a cross-section that will be used for further artistic development.

Art Basel Miami Beach 2014

MegaGlam made a splash in Miami this year by launching a new batch of sculptural outerwear and MegaGlam “I Do What I Want” Action Apparel. We were honored to be featured in Design Miami/’s Collectors Lounge “Designing Miami: Celebrating Ten Years” portraiture project within Olson Kundig’s 38 Beams installation photographed by Gesi Shilling.

We were captured by the cameras of dozens of media outlets, and even more art enthusiasts snapped our photo, or stopped us to talk about the work during ABMB’s many events. Our looks were mistaken for the designs of several fashion luminaries including: Versace, Louis Vuitton and Christian Lecroix.

We also installed a new “on-the-fence” lawn sign series public art project in the Wynwood Art District, featuring an all new “I Do What I Want” campaign.

Thanks to the following journalists and photographers for the great coverage: Emily Michot at the Miami Herald, Gesi Shilling at Design Miami/ and ICA’s opening celebration, Texa Gaya at Design Miami/, Sociéte Perrier and Fresh Eggs at Scope Art Fair, Richard Alvarez for WorldRedEye at the Del Toro Art Basel Kick Off Party, moo.com at Scope Art Fair, VH1 + Scope Art + Music Mashup Lounge, Guido F. Castellanos at the Pulse Art Fair preview, Luis Villalon-Meunier in the Wynwood Art District, Rodrigo Gaya at the ICA VIP Opening, Seth Browarnik and Ryan Troy for World Red Eye at the Untitled Art vernissage preview benefit, George Martinez of Miami New Times at the Art Basel Miami Beach preview and Sergio Morariu of EnduRoMania Foundation at Mana Wynwood.

And, big thanks always to Karl Heine, collaborator, model and documentarist.
