Announcing the launch of X Contemporary, a new art fair to debut during Art Basel Miami Beach 2015. Under the direction of Matthew Eck, X Contemporary focuses on presenting Art Galleries with a strong program of work by emerging and mid-career artists. The inaugural edition of X Contemporary will take place December 1-6, 2015 with a vernissage for VIP guests and press on December 1st, from 5 to 10 p.m.
The symbol X represents a destination point and an area of intersection, an evocative title for a new breed of art fair that will emphasize a crossover between the visual arts, fashion and brand collaborations.
The strategic launch in Midtown positions X Contemporary just blocks from Art Miami and Context, on the inland side of the Julia Tuttle Causeway, a prime thoroughfare location meant to increase foot traffic and ease for visitors making the connection between Miami Beach and Wynwood.
