The Black Lords Installation

Event Description

New York-based Puerto Rican artist Desi Santiago is blowing up. If you made it to the Met’s Alexander McQueen retrospective last year, you’ve already seen his work amongst the mannequins’ S&M-influenced face masks. The McQueen show piqued the attention of Louis Vuitton, who called on him to design sets and masks for this year’s Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

Santiago’s artwork and gallery shows now regularly intersect with fashion labels, nightlife, design, and even his “latino freestyle goth” band Escandalo.

For this year’s Art Basel Miami, Santiago is working on a huge installation for the Lords South Beach Hotel called “The Black Lords.” He plans to transform the hotel into a “ravenous black dog named Gypsy” that will tell fortunes and respond to visitors questions with sound, lasers and smoke. Perrier is sponsoring the installation and they are having a big VIP opening on Tuesday, December 4, but “Gypsy” will be on view all week from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily.
