My Miami: Jim Drain

The Miami-based artist shares his favourite spots

Jim Drain

One show that I want to see: Bouchra Khalili's video trilogy work "The Speeches Series" at the Pérez Art Museum Miami gives voice to people whose lives and histories are often unseen.

A “secret” Florida art venue: Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, has the largest concentration of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed structures anywhere in the world. The interior of the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel (left) is amazing.

My favourite place to eat: Blue Collar on Biscayne Boulevard.

My favourite place for a drink: Gramps on NW 24th Street in Wynwood, or the Corner Bar downtown on North Miami Avenue.

My favourite leisure activity: Lying in the hamam at the Standard Hotel.
