Welcome to Fountain Art Fair in the Wynwood district, Miami 2012, with Army of One (Jef Campion).
Fountain Art Fair Miami Beach, Dec. 6-9, 2012, is the annual emerging arts fair held in the Wynwood Arts District. It’s hot. There’s loud music. And paint. And beer, and bicycles, and puppet shows. It’s the best place to find young talent, and guess what? We found one we especially admire — Corey Hagberg. Keep reading to see images of Corey, CARTWHEEL’s newest featured artist, and other exciting Fountain 2012 artists.
From Fountain Art Fair:
Fountain Art Fair was founded in 2006 by David Kesting, Lincoln Capla, and John Leo as an attempt to leverage support for smaller independent galleries, collectives and artists who wished to gain access to a larger audience of collectors and critics. From its roots deep within the independent Williamsburg, Brooklyn art scene, Fountain has grown to represent over 60 international avant garde galleries and projects, showcasing progressive primary-market works in New York, Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Fountain Art Fair has received critical acclaim for its uniquely alternative art fair model and genuine dedication to the artists and galleries who share in its vision and ideology. Celebrated as the first of a new influential generation of alternative fairs, Fountain is reinterpreting the concept of the art fair experience and paving a new path for the future of contemporary art.

People moved around faster at Fountain than any other Miami art fair — probably because there was no air conditioning inside.
