On December 7th, 2012, at 743 Washington Avenue (on the Miami Beach side and not across the bay in the design district) OHWOW inaugurated the fifth and last edition of It Ain’t Fair (IAF), a venue for avant-garde art across all media. It began in 2008 in Miami, concurrent with the main fair, as another way to view work by emerging artists such as Tauba Auerbach, Ashley Bickerton, Cyprien Gaillard, Clayton Patterson and others.

This year, the exhibition took place on the beach in a 6,000 square foot location. Continuing its tradition of multimedia presentations, OHWOW brought its own Los Angeles-based pirate station, Know Wave Radio (www.know-wave.com), to Miami Beach for a week of live programming to include performances, DJ sets, and interviews.
