November 30 2009 . 05:03am

The Known Gallery staff and The Seventh Letter crew are heading out to ART BASEL, Miami Beach. Here are a few of the shows we are involved in. Email us if you plan to be out there so we can connect.

Since its inception in 2007, Primary Flight has hosted site specific, street-level, outdoor mural and performance art projects in Miami’s Wynwood Art District during Art Basel each year. This global arts and community collective project combines an international selection of top galleries with an exciting program of street exhibitions, parties, and crossover events featuring music, film, architecture and design. Primary Flight’s annual event in Wynwood is the world’s largest, multi-site, street-level mural installation. In just three years, Primary Flight has grown quickly from 15 to over 100 artists, the majority of whom travel to Miami for Art Basel. Founders of the street, stencil, graffiti, and skate art movements headline the annual event. Artists collaborate on strategically located walls throughout the Wynwood Art District. Maps outlining the installation are circulated, providing patrons with an opportunity to view street works
in process.

Notable participating artists have included Augor, Bask, Blek Le Rat, Boxi, David Choe, Crome, Cycle, Michael De
Feo, Dare, Depoe, Dolla, Ellis G, El Mac, Ewok, Frerk, Logan Hicks, Andy Howell, Kofie, Lady Pink, The London
Police, MSG, Kenton Parker, Retna, Revok, Reyes, Risk, Santiago Rubino, She Kills He, Chris Stain, TCP, Tes One,
Typoe, WK Interact, Marc C. Woehr and Agustina Woodgate. Primary Flight is a launch pad for some Street Artists,
and a homecoming for others, such as Shepherd Fairey and Ron English, both of whom transitioned from Street Art
to the Fine Art arena.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, December 2, 2009 from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m.
Exhibition runs December 1, 2009 to January 2, 2010
ArtCenter/South Florida | 800 Lincoln Road | Miami Beach, FL 33139

Emerson Fine Arts proudly presents a group exhibit of drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture for Aqua Art Miami. The exhibition will include works by 10 artist of international reputation: Gary Baseman, Kyan Bishop, Clayton Chandler, Rocky Grimes, Patrick Lindhardt, Leah Oates, Pose, Push, Ryan the Wheelbarrow and Jeff Whipple. This diverse group of contemporaries represents the evolving movement of art transcending boundaries of expectations and genre. The works in the C. Emerson Aqua Art Miami exhibition relate the artists’ captivation with social/cultural issues and personal narrative. The psychological presence of these pieces engages the viewer to reexamine the conceptual basis of surrealism, pop culture and abstract art. Gary Baseman is an internationally adored pervasive artist. His iconic work is Id driven, surreal and playful. Kyan Bishop uses the Ego of her subconscious mind to express an internal struggle with her fascination of completely falling apart. Jeff Whipple advances realism to create a very surrealistic expression of human nature. Clayton Chandler, Push, Ryan the Wheelbarrow play with line quality and abstraction. They engage the viewer’s imagination to actively look far beyond the obvious. Leah Oates and Pose respond to urban experience. Oates uses layers of photography to reflect upon the transcendental experience of landscape. Pose is an influential contributor to the graffiti movement. Rocky Grimes and Patrick Lindhardt expound printmaking to extremes. Grimes’ punk rock sensibility appropriates screen printing creating multi-media installations. He challenges material consumption and culturally driven desires. Lindhardt is a master printmaker utilizing narrative traversing natural disaster. LA Times has describes Gary Baseman’s art "adorably perverse. Leah Oates’s photographs of Transitory Spaces, articulate the amassed banality of the trace and by-products from social processes and consumption” Drain Magazine. Juxtapoz recently interviewed Pose and a part of his collective We Are Supervision. They described him as “graff-writing god Pose.” Rocky Grimes a Juxtapoz favorite has recently been included in Juxtapoz Poster Art Book. Many of the artists exhibiting have had recent museum exhibitions.

Since the late nineties, Alex Fakso has been photographing graffiti, capturing its creation in train yards and subway stations. Many of these gritty images, documenting artists at work across Europe, were published in his book “Heavy Metal.” Now, the Italian photographer, a writer himself, has a new exhibition. “Underground,” opens this weekend at Luxembourg’s Extrabold gallery and will feature a showcase of his most recent creative action shots.

“Underground,” November 28 – December 24, Extrabold, Luxembourg

Nizza x Fakso
An artist, photographer and key documenter of rolling steel, revealing graffiti at its most uncompromising. Milan’s Fakso sees metal as a canvas, celebrating the tactics, technique and determination of the scene’s key players. On the ankle-high Nizza silhouette, the leather upper becomes a canvas, covered by a large graffiti image. The printed tongue, beige 3-Stripes and yellow bottom eyelet, foxing and rubber toe bumper sit on a black midsole, giving the silhouette the dark air of Fakso’s prolific output.
