Finally, we are getting news about performances during Art Basel Miami Beach. It's confirmed that Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell and his wife and collaborator Etty Farrell will be performing at Bardot Thursday, December 2 as part of their Precision Guided Musicians Art Project.
The event will award a $7,000 grant to an artist during the festivities and the promise of showcasing the winner's art at future PGM events. Artists can apply for the grant by submitting 300 DPI high-resolution images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
But what can we except from the Farrells' performance? Well, PGM is all about pairing the alternative rock god with electronic musicians, and this performance won't be any different, being bill as Perry-Etty vs. DJ Chris Cox. Previous PGM performances have featured Farrell alongside Moby and Paul Van Dyk (see below).
Want to catch the performance? Sorry, it's invite-only. Then again, isn't everything during Art Basel invite-only? That hasn't stopped us before from trying to attend events.
