The fair will also present a series of events celebrating Wynwood's creative community featuring well known artists from around the world, culminating with an after hours celebration on December 5th, hosted in partnership with the Wynwood Arts Community. The evening will include a launch party for Clara Vanessa's Uninhibited Urban Art Magazine a bi-monthly art publication featuring HoxxoH in the first edition with appearances by The London Police and El Pez from Barcelona. X Contemporary will also host a 3-day series of events curated by Qi Chi Webster including Eli Reed NYC Pop Up Shop, a live skateboard exhibition with pro skaters, Eli Reed and Joel Meinholz featuring live skateboarding; live art by Torrick Ablack AKA Toxic; new design releases by Eli Reed with a giveaway of Organika decks.
