On December 4, just in time for the throngs of migrant art worlders flying into town for Art Basel in Miami Beach, the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami will open “Angel Without You,” Tracey Emin’s first solo show at a U.S. museum. For the occasion, the British art star has been commissioned by MOCA and the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel to design a limited edition towel, tee-shirt, and flip-flops.
The high art beach gear, which comes emblazoned with the sentence “Kiss me Kiss me Cover my Body in Love” and “I Kiss You” from Emin’s same-named 2004 neon sculptures, will go on sale the week of the mega-fair, and will be available in the MOCA store, at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, and online. The MOCA exhibition, not incidentally, focuses on her extensive work in neon sculpture.
