Now in its sixth incarnation, one of Wynwood's lights-out fairs roars back with more than 80 galleries from across the globe and with a section celebrating the incorporeal human body and skull-staving lineup of video presentations. Pulse Miami promises to be one of the swankiest satellite fairs on the circuit this December. Gansevoort South will host parties for exhibitors and VIPs, and the fair has a haute list of sponsors, including Jaguar, Artnet, and the Epic Hotel. But don't be fooled by the glitz: This show presents powerful contemporary photography (arguably the fair's primary focus), installation, and mixed-media works. Gallery Diet, featuring a special installation from Christy Gast for Pulse Projects, and Diana Lowenstein Fine Arts will represent the 305. Be sure to check out the Impulse section, where galleries present solo exhibitions of artists' work created in the past two years, as well as the Pulse Play> video lounge, featuring "Water on the Mind" -- videos about the emotions inspired by the Gulf oil spill.
