Art Wynwood, the popular winter contemporary art fair produced by Art Miami, will return for its ninth edition at Herald Plaza on Biscayne Bay in Downtown Miami. The fair will open on Feb.13 with a VIP Preview benefitting the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA Miami) before opening to the public over Presidents Day Weekend – Feb. 14 through Feb. 17.
Since 2012, Art Wynwood has been South Florida’s leading destination for contemporary and modern art. The fair offers collectors the opportunity to acquire curated works from emerging talent in the contemporary market, mid-career artists, and blue-chip contemporary, post-war and modern masters and features an elevated array of murals, pop surrealism, street art and other genres. Additionally, for the second year, the Miami Yacht Show will be adjacent to Art Wynwood. The in-water display of new and pre-owned vessels will showcase the most extraordinary and uniquely designed yachts and superyachts from the world’s foremost custom boat builders.
Visitors can expect a collection of new exhibitors, along with rare pieces of art. For example, Long-Sharp Gallery returns to Art Wynwood with a special presentation of rare hand drawings by Andy Warhol that have never been exhibited in the United States, a new monumental sculpture by artist Jason Myers and works from Picasso to Pop.
Galleria D’Arte Martinelli will present a group of works by established international artists, including a 1964 water-paint on canvas by Lucio Fontana, an artist known for breaking through the two-dimensionality of the traditional picture plane. In addition, The Bonnier Gallery will present an exceptional collection, including “Section,” a 1985 piece by American artist Robert Ryman, and Cy Twombly’s 1952 piece, “Still Life With Doorknob.” Lelia Mordoch Gallery will present Jose Arellano, a Miami-based sculptor who creates interactive visual semblances from museum board and xylene-based acrylic paint.
Mark Borghi Fine Art will curate a special installation of works by Chakaia Booker in conjunction with a VIP Reception for ICA Board Members during the VIP Preview. Special project highlights include Pontone Gallery’s presentation of the sculptural work of Pablo Atchugarry in addition to works by Lee Lee Nam. ArtLabbé Gallery will present Amelia Campino, Ca’D’Oro will present David Datuna and Burgess Contemporary will showcase a series of paintings by Marcus Jansen.
