III Points has teamed up with TwinHaus, the Miami-based experimental engineering agency, to curate the art portion of the summit. TwinHaus, is the brainchild of Tara Long, who is a performance based installation and video artist, and partner Yamil Rodriguez, who is a musician and installation artist. The artists participating in III Points are predominantly local artists who have been working in South Florida before Wynwood and Art Basel influenced the local art culture. These artists have outlasted trends and gentrification, and continue to create quality materials and concepts that remain rich and intelligent. The majority of the art at III Points will be conceptualized, and installed specifically for this event. III points will activate satellite locations that will host the artists’ work. Some locations include Gramps, Cafeina, The Butcher Shop, Wynwood Cigar Factory, and many more.

On Friday and Saturday night, there will be a large installation around the main stage stage at Wynwood Cigar Factory integrating art and technology. There will be 3D projection mapping, a new technology which animates stationary objects with 3D video. Spearheading the 3D projection mapping is Jason Peterman with AV-8 Projects and Tecne Collective. Another performance, titled “The Drive-In” will be an interactive site specific performance involving movement, audio, and cars. Artists participating are Patricia Margarita Hernandez, Samantha Kruze, Ana Mendez, and Richard Vergez.

Throughout the weekend, guests will be able to download a specialized app or pick up a pamphlet with a map, artist downloads, videos, and media-related activities.
