Amid dancing to beats by DJ Spencer Sweeney, A.i.A. feted the winners and nominees of Rob Pruitt's 2013 Art Awards in Miami Beach on Tuesday night.

Among those in attendance were Pruitt, dealer Gavin Brown, artist Jacolby Satterwhite, dealer Daniel Buchholz, artist Sam Falls, dealer Shaun Regen, Christie's specialist Koji Inoue, and Carnegie International curators Dan Byers and Tina Kukielski.


The magazine invited Pruitt to publish the awards in the magazine this year as an artist's project, commissioned to help celebrate the magazine's 100th anniversary. To select the artists, critics and curators recognized with awards, Pruitt invited members of the art community to propose nominees and to vote for winners online.

In the spirit of an awards ceremony, Pruitt gave out prizes for best karaoke singer and best dancer on a stripper pole.
