Art Basel / Miami Beach Recap A look back at Twyla House, our waterfront artist retreat.
Phew. Another Art Basel is behind us. Last week, Twyla hit Miami for the year’s buzziest contemporary art fair. We’re tired, but mostly energized from the art we saw, the parties we went to, and the artists and friends we met. For this year’s Art Basel, we turned a waterfront house on the city’s Venetian Islands into our personal hangout and a getaway for artists and their friends — Twyla House. We filled the house with Twyla limited edition art, featuring a curated exhibition of art by 17 incredible artists from around the world. For those who couldn’t be there (or if you were!), we’re recapping our time at our exclusive crash pad.
We designed Twyla House specifically to be an “Artist Retreat”— a luxurious oasis where artists and their friends could retreat and recharge. We wanted it to be less about waiting in long lines and more about lounging by the pool with a cocktail.
We kicked off the week with an opening reception featuring Miami-based artist, Adler Guerrier. A portion of proceeds from the event benefited Partners In Health, an international organization supporting hospitals in Haiti. It was a lovely evening and all of the guests loved checking out the Twyla art hanging everywhere.

The artists on view included Tim Biskup, Elena Lyakir, Charles Christopher Hill, and Matthew Satz. Over 150 guests came to experience the art, enjoy the breathtaking views and meet the Twyla team. And one of the biggest hits of the week were the sound baths by Forest Kind, which were more rejuvenating and transportive than an hour massage.
See you next year!
