CULTURE CALENDAR: DECEMBER 2018
Including a high-profile sneaker collab and an historic sports documentary
VISIT ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH
Exhibits, soirées, and more await at Art Basel Miami Beach, America’s premier art show, held this year at the newly-renovated Miami Beach Convention Center. One major and au courant theme for the 2018 gallery program: strong female artists. American Express will host Platinum House at the 1 Hotel South Beach, featuring exclusive attractions and activities like Equinox classes. Art Basel Miami Beach runs from December 6 to 9.
KICK IT LIKE GIGI HADID
Perhaps no one has done more to usher in the athleisure trend than Gigi Hadid, so it’s only fitting that the supermodel now has her own activewear collaboration. Reebok x Gigi will debut on December 7 with a ‘90s-style shoe in two color combinations—black with yellow laces and white with hot pink laces—and a black cropped T-shirt. The full line will be released in early 2019.
WATCH SUNDERLAND ‘TIL I DIE
Fulwell 73, the production company behind cinematic sports features I Am Bolt and The Class of ’92, now turns its lens on the English soccer club Sunderland. The eight-part documentary series follows the team and their loyal fans, as they try to come back from their worst season and relegation from the Premier League. The documentary debuts on Netflix December 14.
ENJOY MOVIE CLASSICS AL FRESCO
Watch holiday classics from the past (It’s a Wonderful Life) and not-so-distant-past (Love Actually) in a landmark Hollywood setting: the rooftop of the former CBS Studios building, now home to NeueHouse. Enjoy cocktails, popcorn, and the feature attraction (with wireless headphones), while you get in your regeneration time and take in the surroundings. Movies will be screened through December 22.
RING IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT
Located in the city’s Distillery District, the Toronto Christmas Market ups the ante on the classic holiday festival with a 100-foot-long light tunnel, craft cocktails and mulled wine, and walking tours through the historic neighborhood. The market will be open until December 23.
