"THE FREE STORE" at ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH

Visionaire joined forces with Net-a-Porter and Mr. Porter to present Jonathan Horowitz’s interactive installation “The Free Store” at the newly opened SLS Hotel during Art Basel Miami Beach.

Guests were invited to trade in their own goods for choice find, with personal objects donated by Visionaire founders Cecilia Dean and James Kaliardos, Riccardo Tisci, Natalie Massenett, and Jeremy Langmead along with many more from artists, collectors, and musicians. Trinkets included a shower filter, used socks, splenda packets, a phone number, a Shakira CD, coffee table books including a mint-condition Philip-Lorca diCorcia, a Cars neck pillow, glassware and some surprisingly on-trend clothing pieces (such as a voluminous Calvin Klein coat that was immediately snatched up).

Leftover goods were donated to both Bailey's House and Horowitz's efforts for Rockaway Artists Alliance, a collective of artists, fashion, and media who volunteer in the areas deeply affected by Hurricane Sandy.
