Art Fair Miami
Art Wynwood 2016
Art Wynwood solidifies its reputation as the winter season's premier art fair with this year's roster of highly respected galleries and artists. Produced by Art Miami, the annual Presidents Day Weekend fair presents its fifth edition with a dynamic array of works from street artists and muralists, emerging young talent, and world-renowned contemporary and modern artists. Regarded for its distinct identity among Miami art fairs, Art Wynwood will be set apart further by its unique approach to audience engagement as characterized by a new exhibition on the '60s, a focus on Miami institutions and a special section highlighting our neighbor to the north, Canada.
Taking place from Thursday, February 11 to Monday, February 15, 2016, Art Wynwood consistently attracts the most established collectors, curators and art world luminaries from around the globe. The prestigious fair's VIP Private Preview will occur on Thursday, February 11, from 6:00PM to 10:00PM, presented by Merrill Lynch. Last year, several influential names in the industry, such as Mera Rubell and Beth Rudin DeWoody, acquired significant pieces from the fair. Art Wynwood also offers serious collectors and seasoned art enthusiasts the best opportunity to discover, explore and collect some of the most significant art works of the era. This year, Art Wynwood will feature over 70 galleries and diverse artists hailing from countries such as France, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Liechtenstein, South Korea and, of course, from throughout the U.S.
"Art Wynwood provides the perfect opportunity for collectors and guests alike to engage with artwork that defines and crosses genres, from emerging to masters. Here our visitors can experience art in a more relaxed and focused environment," said Art Wynwood Director Grela Orihuela. "Our fair has developed into a meaningful destination for an international audience, so every year we choose projects that spotlight Miami and the important work and innovation happening here year round."
he 2016 edition will offer specially curated exhibitions that promote Art Wynwood's aim to consistently put an emphasis on curated projects.
The fair will introduce the beloved '60s genre to a younger audience in a new exhibition and will re-contextualize the decade for the well-versed collector. In conjunction with this highly anticipated project, there will be a series of lectures, a special film screening and a musical component.
Through FOCUS MIAMI, Art Wynwood places a special emphasis on local organizations, including not-for-profit exhibition space Locust Projects, arts publications such as The Miami Rail, and activations with programs such as a collaboration with Laundromat, a recently launched artist run space and workshop incubator for the disabled, and Cannonball, an artist residency that invites artists to live and work in Miami in an immersive fashion.
To highlight the growing arts scene in Canada, Art Wynwood will also create a section called Northern Border, which seeks to present visionary and creative works offered by a selection of galleries from Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, Vancouver, and other Canadian cities.
"The success of Art Wynwood continues to grow," said Nick Korniloff, Executive VP and Partner of Art Miami LLC. "It is a travel destination during winter that gives guests a chance to see Miami's vibrant art scene that continues to flourish beyond December's coveted Miami Art Week."
Throughout the past decade, the Wynwood district has become "the" neighborhood for the underground art movement, effectively showcasing Miami's art potential by featuring some of today's most preeminent street artists - many of whom continue to garner global recognition from top dealers, tastemakers and influential collectors. The success and growth of Art Wynwood over the past five years also emphasizes its realization as a respected art scene.
