ICA Miami welcomes electronic artist Bonaventure (Discwoman) to First Fridays for a special performance, along with Miami-based artist and Space Tapes founder Nick León and a DJ set by Ashley Venom.
Bonaventure uses music as an identity research tool along with practical and speculative initiatives to connect her African and European roots and investigate human relationships. Bonaventure has performed at renowned international nightclubs including Janus x NON XCHANGE at Berghain Säule, CREEPY TEEPY Festival in Prague, the 404RCE night in Club ALL, Shanghai, Moogfest held in Durham, NC and H0l0 PTP night in NYC, and has shared the stage with artists like Princess Nokia, LSDXOXO, Dinamarca, M.E.S.H., FAKA and Yves Tumor.
Nick León is a Miami-based experimental electronic musician and producer. With a film score, further production for other artists including Warp Record’s Gaika, DJ gigs and a label/collective he launched for other producers and bedroom musicians in Miami, Nick León’s hands are full, his heart happy and his beats teeming with (real) life.
First Fridays is a neighborhood-wide initiative celebrating art and performance in the Miami Design District. Explore ICA Miami’s exhibitions after dark, and enjoy activities for guests of all ages—film screenings, exhibition tours, performances, and more!
Museum guests are encouraged to explore various after-hours activations throughout the Miami Design District, including world-class public art installations by Sol LeWitt, Urs Fischer, and Buckminster Fuller, among others, and a free Performance Series produced by 19-time Grammy© Award-winning producer Emilio Estefan in collaboration with Maestro Eduardo Marturet from The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO).
First Fridays at ICA Miami are free and open to the public, and are presented by the museum’s Innovation Partner, MINI.
