When Beached Miami ace reporter Robby Campbell heard there was an extravaganza at Miami Beach Convention Center last weekend, he couldn’t believe Exxxotica was already back in town. Needless to say, he rushed over — only to find another vulgar spectacle underway. Here’s his report from Art Basel Miami Beach, featuring an interview with time travelers EVA & ADELE.

Few people create more of a stir when they enter the room than EVA & ADELE. You may not know them by name, but to see them is to have the image emblazoned on your memory forever. They are a fixture of art happenings around the world, including Art Basel Miami Beach, where I first spotted them in person last year. Starkly bald, both feminine, masculine, and neither, dressed identically and in high fashion, smiling, they managed to become the center of attention in a corridor lined with Picassos, Warhols, and other legends.
They were an incredible sight — a vision, really, somewhat disturbing — but for whatever reason I never got around to looking them up. But after I saw them again, at the Convention Center on Wednesday and at the Rubell house for a yogurt breakfast on Thursday, I got curious. Before I go further, here they are at the ABMB vernissage on Wednesday.
