It Ain't Fair 2012

December 6 - 9, 2012
Miami Beach, FL

OHWOW is pleased to announce the fifth and final edition of the annual group exhibition It Ain’t Fair (IAF). Coinciding with Art Basel Miami Beach, It Ain’t Fair 2012 celebrates the history and tradition of IAF‘s renowned multimedia production, and closes the chapter on what came to define OHWOW’s identity as a community platform for progressive art in all media. Since the first installment in 2008, It Ain’t Fair proved an innovative and divergent idea; an exhibition and project providing an alternate experience to the dozens of December art fairs in Miami. The exhibition continued to evolve through the years, yet always reflected its time, excelling at capturing the trends occurring in contemporary art. The final IAF moves from the Design District to a 6,000 square foot location on the beach to accommodate a large-scale exhibition and various projects, delivering a climactic conclusion to this definitive enterprise. It Ain‘t Fair 2012 assembles a selection of over 30 contemporary artists, many who contributed in past years, along with several new names. In addition, OHWOW brings its Los Angeles-based pirate station, Know Wave Radio (, to Miami Beach for a full week of live programming to include performances, DJ sets, and interviews. IAF 2012 will also host a soup kitchen – a social project that provides free dinner to anyone wanting a meal, daily from 5 to 7 PM. Hundreds of artists and creatives make the trip to Art Basel Miami Beach every year on shoestring budgets; the soup kitchen gives back and supports a community that has helped shape the energy and success of OHWOW’s endeavors.
