  “I want guests to feel like they are the only element of color in the monochromatic side that has only greys, blacks and whites, as if a foreign element in a black and white movie – and to feel pale in the hyper-polychromatic other side, where the tropics hit a bit too hard.” – Carsten Höller

On the occasion of Art Basel Miami Beach, Fondazione Prada presents The Prada Double Club Miami by Carsten Höller, an installation to be experienced as a fully-functioning nightclub. In this new project, the artist further investigates the notion of two-sidedness, one being entirely monochromatic, the other hyper-polychromatic: the two different spaces offer visually and acoustically opposed experiences, with no concession to fusion. The vital and most important aim of The Prada Double Club Miami is to allow art to move outside its usual restrictive contexts— transforming it into a real life experience. The artist creates a sort of dialogue and crowds are free to engage with the surrounding environment on multiple levels and become living components of a participatory experience.
