Event: The Infamous magazine at Primary Flight, Art Basel Miami
Location: Wynwood Arts District, Miami, Florida
Dates: December 1–4, 2011
Primary Flight is a satellite event of the annual Art Basel events held in Miami. In contrast to the tony galleries and showrooms of Miami Beach, Primary Flight is held on the streets and in the industrial and commercial spaces of the Wynwood Arts District on the north side of central Miami. Primary Flight bills itself as Miami’s “open air museum and street level mural installation… arguably the world’s largest event of its kind.”
In 2011, The Infamous teamed up with the co11ective, a group of artists displaying their works in a rehabbed warehouse, part of “The Kohn Compound” at NW 24th Street and 2nd Avenue in Wynwood. Aside from networking with our peers, we were hosting our own art show consisting of works from contributors to The Infamous magazine. With nightly parties and constant foot traffic, it was a very lively event both inside our space and out, where thousands of people walked the neighborhood, taking in the scene.
The event also served as the release party for The Infamous’ sixth issue.
