The World's Most Talked About New Art Dealer

Instagram has emerged as an entirely new platform for the art world. In celebration of this new "art of buying art," we propose a series of culturally relevant art brunches during Art Basel Miami Beach 2015.

Instagram allows you to preview exhibitions happening everywhere in the world, and to see the works the minute the exhibitions open, rather than waiting to read about it in a review. That’s what makes it exciting.
— Simon de Pury, International Auctioneer

The Basic Ingredients of the brunch

A series of brunches are hosted Dec. 3rd through the 5th in an upscale mid-century diner on South Beach. 

Up to 300 invited guests enjoy a tasty pancake decorated by an artist, along with a menu of specialty brunch cocktails. 

The brunches last until 3pm and the restaurant is open to the public during dining hours. 


Each day a different guest curator hosts a brunch, inviting their favorite artists from Instagram. A teaser of the event is revealed via the curator's account in advance - artists are also encouraged to share on their accounts.

A hybrid of performance and installation art, interactive moments encourage participation.

The crowd will include a curated group of key influencers in the realms of art, fashion, music and food. Gallerists, art stars, dealers, collectors, and the fashion set will mix effortlessly in a world of tiki-luxe breakfast perfection.

Today things are different and smart people in the art world embrace social media for what it is: an extraordinary way to discover, promote and critique art.

Stephen Starr's popular eatery, The Continental, has come to Miami Beach.

Chef and Restauranteur Stephen Starr is known for his immersive, cerebral environments. USA Today identified him as the “it” guy of city’s food scene, while Restaurant Hospitality cited his popular restaurants in Philadelphia as “arguably the key reason for the city’s revitalized culinary scene.”

The Continental is South Beach’s newest hotspot – with a focus on curated spirits, fresh ingredients, and tiki-inspired recipes, the cocktail list is as creative as the cuisine. Guests enjoy exotic menu offerings in the mid-century modern dining room or chill on the lush tropical patios.

Accommodates 225 in the eclectic indoor dining room and lush outdoor terraces


We are looking to build partnerships with likeminded brands in the worlds of 

Liquor | Travel | Art | Fashion | Media | Tech | Luxury

We will have one in-house photographer documenting the events. Photos will be syndicated to a selection of media outlets via our publicist.

In a highly visual sector like the contemporary art world, images sell. And where better to find beautiful, curated, filtered images than Instagram?
