New York Film Academy South Beach

  • A Look at Art Basel 2017 by New York Film Academy South Beach


    Miami: home of bikinis, sunshine, and Art Basel.  Sure, Art Basel happens in other cities around the world, but nothing beats the annual event that takes over the city of Miami each winter, drawing artists and visitors from around the world to explore new themes and cutting-edge creations in contemporary art. Up-and-coming artists, celebrities, and everyone in between make their way to Miami in order to take part in the numerous events, private showings and parties, the VIP after parties and more every December.

    This year New York Film Academy (NYFA) South Beach was proud to collaborate with two of the biggest Art Basel events, Spectrum and PULSE.

    During the Spectrum event, NYFA South Beach had the privilege to showcase some alumni and faculty work. We also hosted an incredible panel with featured artists Naomi White, Angelika Rinnhofer, and Jon Henry, which was lead by New York Film Academy Chair of Photography David Mager. The panel and photography showcase created a buzz throughout the Spectrum/Red Dot event for the rest of the week.

    NYFA South Beach also partnered with Pulse,  creating visual work for their Perspectives project, featuring private interviews with this year’s presenting artists Mindy Solomon (owner of the Mindy Solomon Gallery), Carolina García Jayaram (CEO of the National YoungArts Foundation) and Donna Ruff.

    NYFA South Beach’s Perspectives video spotlights were a part of an installment at the entrance of the Pulse VIP area. Viewers were able to enjoy the video one at a time, creating an exclusive experience while still channeling the fun and artwork that surrounded the venue.

    Celebrity sightings were another exciting feature of Art Basel this year, with Jonathan Cheban, Scott Disick, Alec Monopoly, and Owen Wilson winding their way through the exhibits. New York Film Academy’s very own Sally Nieves was also interviewed by a local television show called Vibes and Views Miami!

    Between Spectrum, Pulse, Art Basel and New York Film Academy, social media was buzzing all week long. If you missed out, make sure to stay tuned for next year’s Art Basel events, which we hope will be even bigger and better!

    NYFA South Beach is proud to participate in PULSE and Spectrum, and looks forward to next year’s Art Basel festivities.

  • New York Film Academy Partners With PULSE Miami Beach Arts Fair


    At this year’s PULSE Miami Beach art fair, the New York Film Academy (NYFA) South Beach will join forces with a global contemporary art community as the official supporter of one of the art fair’s key events: PERSPECTIVES. PULSE Miami Beach is one of the Miami art scene’s premier annual events, providing an exciting and dynamic venue for today’s thrilling contemporary art.

    The New York Film Academy South Beach is very excited to partner with PULSE Art Fair for the production of PERSPECTIVES,” said NYFA South Beach Director Elli Ventouras. “We feel that this is a natural collaboration of art and culture. Filming with PERSPECTIVES allowed us to develop a relationship with artists within the Miami art scene, and working in partnership with PULSE Art Fair will provide our students with real-world exposure to today’s contemporary artists and artwork in a truly rich and exciting context. We hope that this is the beginning of a long collaboration with PULSE Art Fair for many years to come.”

    Throughout PULSE Miami Beach 2017, NYFA South Beach will have two photographers live on the scene to capture the action at PULSE Miami Beach, as the public interacts with emerging and established galleries from an international community of artists.

    In addition, NYFA South Beach has partnered with PERSPECTIVES to create three original video profiles of 2017 exhibiting artists Donna Ruff, Mindy Solomon, and National YoungArts Foundation President Carolina García Jayaram. As the fair’s opening approaches, the films will be released on the PULSE Miami Beach website, and then screened as an installation for audiences at PERSPECTIVES.

    PULSE began in New York in 2005, but organizers were inspired to shift their center of operations entirely to the city of Miami in 2016 to become PULSE Miami Beach. Since then, the arts fair has launched PULSE 360, a year-round events initiative focused on fostering community and engagement, and forged this new partnership with the New York Film Academy’s South Beach campus.

    PULSE Miami Beach will run Dec. 7-10 in Miami. As a part of the partnership between PULSE Miami Beach and New York Film Academy, complimentary day passes are available for all NYFA South Beach students.
