during the 2018 edition of miami art week, prada has introduced a branded, culture-themed event platform titled ‘prada mode’. imagined as a club that augments and extends significant global cultural gatherings at diverse locations worldwide, the platform serves up a range of offerings including music, conversation, food, and fashion. prada mode offers guests exclusive access to programs and parties that complement the themes and subjects of the host event — in this case, miami art week.

the platform’s inaugural iteration is being held at freehand miami from december 4-6, 2018. prada mode miami serves as both an exclusive destination and a discreet, elegant retreat from the daily clamor of high-intensity cultural engagements during art basel, design miami/, and the week’s other festivities. the club is a complete takeover of the location with the building’s lobby, pool area, herb garden, lounge, and restaurants refurnished and redecorated to reflect prada’s longstanding appreciation of the miami aesthetic.

the schedule includes events co-organized by the national youngarts foundation, honey dijon, and derek blasberg, among others. a site-specific intervention by artist theaster gates is present throughout the club, while on the last day, gates also curates the music programming. meanwhile, in the afternoon, documental journal hosts conversations on the current state of the image, fostering advancement in understanding and innovation within the fields of art and fashion today.

special menus are planned throughout each day at the club, and each night culminates in a party with live music acts. the prada mode miami resident DJs include craig richards, no vacancy inn, AJ kwame, and arman nafeei. scheduled performances include those by ella, DJ madrid perry, and theaster gates and the black monks of mississippi.
