Under the Glass, HVW8’s Creative Class

Interview/text from Honeyeecom.us

Miami Art Week had a lot of parties, a lot of looks and a lot of corporate sponsors trying to get in on the art scene.

That’s why HVW8 Gallery’s Creative Class stood out to our team. Held outside of the Miami Beach vicinity, they presented five artists Atiba Jefferson, Kilo Kish, Lisa Leone, Ines Longevial and Brian Lotti at their three day exhibition at Miami’s historic, Jewel Box. The standout feature all five artists: all five had their first shows with HVW8.

Second to that, the team worked with adidas and Sonos, in a way that was subtle, including the brand as patron of the arts and not some culture vulture (which we witnessed plenty of throughout our time in Miami).

We talked with Tyler Gibney, one of HVW8’s founders, about Miami and about their mission with HVW8.

Kilo Kish ‘Fullfillment’ Video – HVW8 Gallery

Article from Vogue

Kilo Kish may be better known for wearing oversize suits than frilly dresses, but her new interactive video project for “Fulfillment,” a standout from last year’s Reflections in Real Time, proves that the rapper can pull off menswear staples and full-on gowns equally well.

Kish shared a new website designed by Empire Taste that allows the viewer to flip between four different security camera feeds of HVW8 gallery in Los Angeles. Each one depicts a different angle of Kish dancing and singing in a vintage pink gown, belted with a black ribbon that matches her long satiny gloves. HVW8 is currently housing an installation by Kish, who is also a visual artist. Of the video’s voyeuristic framing, Kish says that “watching security footage of someone alone in a big white box asks the question, ‘How do we find and define fulfillment in our digital society?’ ” So ponder the social behaviors of our current technological moment and admire Kish’s vintage pink gown by watching the clip below, or head to the website to take it in from every point of view.
