On the evening of Wednesday, December 6, TASCHEN Store Miami welcomed the world-renowned Beatriz Milhazes to celebrate the launch of her widely anticipated Collector’s Edition.
In partnership with the Financial Times, FT arts editor Jan Dalley hosted a Q&A with the artist. Milhazes took the time to share anecdotes from her career and thrilled the crowd by personalizing copies of her book. To the melodious sounds of bossa nova musician Cezar Santana, wine flowed and mouth-watering brigadeiros were sampled—for one night, it seemed our Miami store and its visitors were transported to Rio de Janeiro, Beatriz’s hometown.
The event came as a second stop in Milhazes’s presentation of her monograph. Spectacular in every detail, the Collector’s Edition documents all of the phases of the Brazilian artist’s work in their full splendor and meaning, complete with chapter breaks created by Milhazes specifically for this project, an insightful interview, an art-historical essay, and an artist biography—it is nothing short of a definitive exploration of her career.
This Collector’s Edition is limited to 1,000 signed and numbered copies, and is also available as an Art Edition with the signed print Mango and Passion Fruit in Lilac and Violet, signed by Milhazes and limited to 100 copies.
