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.
Part art project, part community broadcast, Know Wave has presented a rotating cast of special guests such as Mykki Blanco, Nate Lowman, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, and Cat Power, among others. It Ain’t Fair 2012 includes the work of over 30 artists, includingDavid Adamo, Scott Campbell, Sam Falls, Luis Gispert, Hanna Liden, Ryan McGinley, Laurel Nakadate, Terry Richardson and Amanda Ross-Ho, among others. It runs through tomorrow.
