Kicking off Art Basel 2018, Dream South Beach has partnered with world-renowned portrait photographer Jonathan Mannion on a show entitled, It was All A Dream. Inspired by Biggie Smalls’ famous lyrics and Mannion’s career in capturing the hip-hop industry, the hotel lobby will transform into a gallery, showcasing 25 pieces, including exclusive pieces that have never been seen before by the Miami audience. The installation will also consist of some of Mannion’s classic images including Biggie, Missy Elliot, Lil Wayne, and Drake along with his 665-polaroid collection featuring Snoop Dogg, Usher, Eminem, Ludacris, and more.
In celebration of the showcase, Mannion and Dream South Beach will host a viewing on Wednesday, December 5th at 5pm, followed by a Q & A and reception at the hotel’s bespoke rooftop, HIGHBAR.
“We’re excited to partner with Jonathan at Art Basel 2018,” said Rohit Anand, VP of Brand Partnerships for Dream Hotels. “His Influence on art and culture is in line with the Dream Hotel brand, and we look forward to growing this relationship to a national level with exhibits, installations, and events across all of our properties.”
Mannion, who displayed his work most recently at The Compound in NYC this past Fall, began his career as the studio assistant for the legendary Richard Avedon. For decades, the photographer has shot numerous album covers and turned his love of hip-hop into a career that has shaped the public personas of globally recognized artists.If you love Soul Of Miami, please consider leaving a testimonial.
