A DECADE OF ART WYNWOOD: MIAMI’S PREMIER WINTER CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR RETURNS ON PRESIDENTS DAY WEEKEND WITH MORE THAN 50 WORLD CLASS GALLERIES
Art Wynwood, Miami’s foremost winter art fair, produced by Art Miami, is returning for its 10th edition. Taking place over Presidents Day Weekend, the fair will launch with an exclusive VIP Preview on Thursday, February 16 before opening to the public Friday, February 17 through Sunday, February 19 at One Herald Plaza.
Art Wynwood provides a unique opportunity for collectors to discover and explore the world’s most prestigious contemporary, emerging and modern art galleries in the vibrant cultural hub of South Florida. Since Art Wynwood’s ninth edition in 2020, the city’s real estate boom has been one of the country’s largest transfers of wealth, making Art Wynwood 2023 the best opportunity to collect some of the most important art works of the 20th and 21st centuries.
More than 50 leading international galleries from countries spanning England, Italy, the Dominican Republic, Canada, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom, Venezuela, Austria, and throughout the U.S. will showcase an elevated array of murals, pop surrealism, street art and other modern and contemporary genres by innovative emerging artists as well as top names.
“Year over year, Art Wynwood attracts key collectors, curators, art advisors, designers, and art aficionados from around the world,” shares Art Wynwood Director Julian Navarro. “Art Wynwood’s highly anticipated 2023 edition will feature a mix of new and established contemporary galleries, as well as special projects and solo exhibitions.”
For the first time in the fair’s history, Thursday’s VIP Preview will benefit The Bass, Miami Beach’s preeminent contemporary art museum, supporting its mission to expand the interpretation of contemporary art, and use art as a catalyst for creativity and positive growth.
“We are delighted to partner with Art Wynwood,” says Silvia Karman Cubiñá, Executive Director/Chief Curator for The Bass. “The fair offers a vibrant platform for international art enthusiasts and collectors to discover emerging contemporary artists and exciting new works, further positioning Miami as a hub for visual arts.”
Art Wynwood 2023 is expected to draw prominent attendees and for the third year, the world-renowned Miami International Boat Show will be adjacent to Art Wynwood, an in-water display showcasing the most extraordinary and uniquely designed yachts and superyachts from the world’s foremost custom boat builders.
During this year’s fair, Art Wynwood will present Kelly "RISK" Graval with the Art Wynwood Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award. Regarded as a founder of the West Coast Graffiti movement, LA-based RISK was the first to paint full-color pieces and productions on the city’s freeway, creating the Los Angeles freeway movement, and continues to innovate and shape contemporary art through his work. Presented in partnership with Wynwood Walls, the award recognizes individuals in art whose careers have changed the industry. Previous award recipients include Mel Ramos, Martha Cooper, Shepard Fairey, Logan Hicks, and Ron English.
Presented by Chase Contemporary, RISK’s art will be featured on an outdoor mural flanking the Fair entrance. He will also debut four new Virtual Reality graffiti prints, which when activated via a phone camera come to life through the screen. Other Art Wynwood 2023 highlights include:
● Heitsch Gallery will present four new thought provoking works from artist Eike König.
● Laurent Marthaler will showcase new works from Swiss artists Crystel Ceresa and Daniel Cherbuin.
● Liquid Art System will present hyperrealist works, including paintings by Attilio Cianni and sculptures by Peter Demetz.
● Fabien Castanier Gallery will showcase works from RERO, Jan Kalàb and Austyn Taylor.
● Art Angels will present works from Michael Callas and Flore.
