Young Artist Initiative Presents
RAW Pop Up — Art Basel 2017
December 6th to December 9th
Young Artist Initiative (YAI) Presents RAW, a 3-floor immersive multi-sensory pop up from December 6th to December 9th at the Historic Post Office Building in Downtown Miami during Art Basel 2017.
RAW is a disruptive local presence empowering emerging artists during the most important week for the arts in Miami. This is the first and only art event to take place at the Historic Post Office Building.
In today's world, the human mind is constantly over stimulated, not focused on living in the present moment. For its next installment, YAI has selected RAW as the curatorial thesis for site specific installations. The human senses will be stripped to their purest form; ready to be felt in a raw space. With over 40+ emerging artists interpreting the senses, RAW's pop up aims to challenge, engage and awaken.

THURS .07 8pm — El Batatono by Myopía
