Those on the lookout for something to do in Miami Beach on Friday evening with a charitable flavor, take note: in place of its standard Miami Basel party, MoMA PS1 is hosting a benefit for the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance, which is supporting relief efforts in that Sandy–battered section of New York.
The benefit goes from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m., and will feature DJ time from Avey Tare and Deakin of Animal Collective and Dave 1 of Chromeo. A film by Matthew Akers will screen at 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $100, and VIP tickets are going for $1,000, which “grants you immediate entrance upon arrival and a cabana (upon availability),” according to a rep for the museum.
Tickets are available online until 6 p.m. on Friday, and as MoMA PS1’s director, Klaus Biesenbach (who has been a very vocal advocate for the Rockaways since the storm) pointed out in an e-mail to press, you need not be in Miami to make a donation to the cause. “It Is more about on the occasion of Miami Art Basel, asking people to contribute and not just sell and buy,” he wrote in the letter.
