miamiHeights Screened at RFC

On Friday night and Saturday afternoon, the hometown premiere of miamiHeights: Hernan Bas screened at The Rubell Family Collection in Wynwood. The very first scenes of the film were shot in the same building during Art Basel Miami Beach 2007, as the RFC opened their major survey show of Bas’ work.

Friday’s SRO screening was followed by an aftertalk with Hernan Bas and the film’s director Bill Bilowit, moderated by conceptual artist and longtime Bas friend Bert Rodriguez.
