Six feet under for nearly six months, Max Fish is resurfacing in Miami Beach next week. Well, sort of.

Former Monroe Street gallery Klughaus is headed to Miami for Art Basel, and joined forces with Max Fish and DKNY to bring the soul of the bar (or what’s left of it) to the beach.

Artists will help re-create the recently-shuttered Max Fish at Radio Bar. Participants include Alexander Heir, Brigette Engler, Cinik, Combey Road, Dan Santoro, Greg Lamarche, Gregg Woolard, Grotesk, Jurne, Lewy Btm, Marc Flood, Maxwell Holyoke-Hirsch, Meryl Smith, Mr. Kiji, Sabekst, Seb Gorey, Snoeman, The Yok & Sheryo, Tom Gould, Victor Reyes, Steel, and Wane Cod.

From the mailbag:

As downtown continues to transition for better or worse, Klughaus welcomes the chance to collaborate with the Fish as another bastion of old school New York that is carving out a space somewhere between what the city was and what its becoming.

To pay homage to Max Fish and NYC, Klughaus will help Max Fish re-create the bar’s legendary LES space in Miami. Klughaus artists will paint Radio Bar’s interiors and exteriors onsite including the Fish’s infamous graffiti-decorated bathrooms and interior blue and red dot patterns. Klughaus will also present an eclectic mix of artwork representing different scenes and mediums by a variety of artists and photographers both established and emerging.

This pairing puts a funky taste in our mouths…
