III Points Festival: Five Best Arts Events
Wynwood is all about the art. But when music and technology enter the mix this weekend for the III Points Festival, things will escalate to a whole new level of brilliance.
Sure, the major headliners at this weekend's festival are musicians like Miami Horror, YACHT, and others. But if you're not paying attention to the art on display, you're missing out on at least a third of the fun.
Cultist is here to guide you through the multi-medium mélange of arts events this weekend. Here, we present you with our top five unmissable arts events at III Points.
5. John Sevigny's "Wilderness of Mirrors"
The description of this event on John Sevigny's website says it all: "First Miami exhibition ever. Possibly the last. Saturday, October 5. One night only. Be there. It's free. There will be booze."
The world-renowned photographer's way with words is only trumped by his proficiency with a camera. His solo show, "Wilderness of Mirrors", will display photos he took during his extensive travels through various dangerous areas of Central America as he played "paparazzi to the iconic unknown." The Imagesound team is presenting the solo show and will be curating a special soundtrack for the event.
Imagesound Americas (120 NW 25th St., Suite 203, Miami), Saturday, October 5, 6 to 9 p.m., free admission
4. Strangeways Zine Release
Counter culture zine masthead Strangeways is going big. Their newest zine drops just in time for III Points, and will be a theme-less tribute to the styles, concepts and techniques of this weekend's festival. The sounds of Santiago Caballero will accompany the exhibit and there will be a handful of giveaways and plenty of copies of Strangeways floating around Bardot. Afterwards, stick around for performances by Miami Horror, Dude Skywalker and Pirate Stereo.
