If you're a collector or a just plain art aficionado without the purchasing power and you've never attended O.H.W.O.W.'s It Ain't Fair, you're missing out on one of the week's best satellite fairs. It's not really much of a fair, though, as there's only one gallery represented. But the curated show exhibits work by some of the best contemporary artists around.
Already in it's third year, It Ain't Fair will also serve as the debut of O.H.W.O.W.'s new space. That's right: The iconic black-and-white striped building on NW 7th Avenue in Allapattah will no longer serve as the gallery's home. Headquarters have moved to the Design District at 81 NE 40th Street. (So much for the name "Our House West of Wynwood.") Our emailed request for comment about the move remained unanswered by O.H.W.O.W.
The move is enough of a reason to check out of the opening exhibition this Thursday at 8 p.m., but the art will probably keep you there. Exhibiting artists include Daniel Arsham, Scott Campbell, Julia Chiang, Dan Colen, André Ethier, FriendsWithYou, Phil Frost, Michael Genovese, Luis Gispert, Gustavo Godoy, Tomoo Gokita, Diana Al-Hadid, Trenton Doyle-Hancock, Julia Ziegler-Haynes, Michael St. John, KAWS, Robert Lazzarini, Nate Lowman, Brendan Lynch, Ari Marcopoulos, Barry McGee, Neck Face, José Parlá, Rey Parlá, Kembra Pfahler, Aurel Schmidt, David Benjamin Sherry, Lucien Marc Smith, Agathe Snow, and Nick Van Woert. Once you've got your fill of It Ain't Fair, head to the after party at Bar. The exhibit will be up until January 8, 2011.
