MIAMI – Last night, Pérez Art Museum Miami welcomed nearly 4,500 members and art world VIPs for PAMM Presents Cashmere Cat, Jillionaire + special guest Uncle Luke, a Poplife production.
The evening began with a Veuve Clicquot Rich toast to artists to include a special tribute to Miami-based artists, led by PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans.

Outside on PAMM’s east terrace and beach, overlooking Biscayne Bay, Trinidadian DJ and music producer Jillionaire kicked off the party with his indie and Caribbean dance beats. Miami’s own Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell got the crowd going with a special performance, mixing the best of his classic Miami bass hits. The night culminated with Norwegian musician and DJ Cashmere Cat, whose set featured projected visual elements, set against the backdrop of the museum’s Herzog & de Meuron-designed building.
Notable guests of the evening included artists Chuck Close, Fred Eversley, Liliana Porter, Hank Willis Thomas, Retna and TYPOE; musician and producer Skrillex; Major Lazer DJ Walshy Fire; music producer Abebe Lewis; 99 JAMZ’s DJ Nasty; Local 10 News anchor/reporter Neki Mohan; gallerists Brook Dorsch and Anthony Spinello; and PAMM artists Julio Le Parc, Firelei Báez, José Bedia, Edouard Duval-Carrié, Jillian Mayer, Carlos Motta, Sarah Oppenheimer, David Reed and Francis Trombly.
