Art Wynwood is listed as one of the art fairs that shouldn’t be missed this year, and it is already renowned for attracting many collectors, curators and art world luminaries from all over the world during the winter season. Its identity is characterized by its unique approach to the emerging street artists and muralists, as well as to many talented artists from other art genres, worldwide. This year’s fair, which is its 4th edition, is a bit more inclusive, as a few additions were made to its program – a new exhibition on the 60s, a focus on Miami institutions and a section dedicated to Canada. Art Wynwood will feature around 70 galleries and artists this year, coming from various countries, from the USA, Canada, Europe and Asia as well.

Attracting More People Each Year

Established in the art-centric neighborhood, Art Wynwood attracts many different artists, and also addresses the international art scene. It mostly reflects on street art, but it also showcases pieces of some major underground art streams, such as pop surrealism. In 2015, Art Wynwood attracted around 35 000 guests during its five-day run, and more than 7500 VIP guests attended the opening night VIP Private Preview. This year, the fair is expected to gather an even larger audience, not only because of its growing reputation and the wide spectrum of contemporary art, but also because of the prestigious event it coincides with – Yacht & Brokerage Show, located less than five miles away from the Art Wynwood pavilion. The art fair also takes place on the President’s Day weekend, and it will probably be one of the busiest weekends in Miami at this time of year. This year’s edition of the fair will certainly bring a rich program, diverse in content, and the outstanding list of galleries includes Heitsch Gallery, Robert Fontaine Gallery, m+V Art Miami, Art Lexing, Unix Gallery and ZK Gallery.

Special Sections of the Fair

The intent behind introducing the 60’s art section is to help familiarize the younger audience with this genre, and to reinterpret the 60’s for the collectors who are already keen on the decade. The project will be accompanied by a series of lectures and some additional events, such as a special film screening and a musical component. The other special section, FOCUS MIAMI, strives to put emphasis on the local, and to promote enthusiasm with which the city supports both the mainstream and the alternative art scene. It will present non-profit exhibition spaces, art publications and innovative programs, such as the Miami Rail publication, YES artist exchange program, Laundromat – workshop incubator for the disabled, and Cannonball artist residency. The third new addition is related to Canada and its growing art scene. The section is called Northern Border, and it will present works offered by the galleries from a few Canadian cities, including Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Vancouver.
