Announcing the launch of X Contemporary, a new art fair to debut during Art Basel Miami 2015. Under the direction of Matthew Eck, X Contemporary will focus 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.
It is with great pleasure that I announce the 2015 Advisory Board for the inaugural edition of X Contemporary: Ariel Adkins, Curatorial Ambassador, Twitter and owner of ArtfullyAwear; Kipton Cronkite, Owner of ArtStager and a veteran of Luxury Real Estate; Vincent Harrison of Castle Fitzjohns Gallery; Michael Klein, Owner of Michael Klein Arts LLC, former Curator for Microsoft; and Pamela Willoughby, independent art advisor and dealer.
