X Contemporary formed as a result of Select Fair being dissolved and my desire to continue creating and producing Art Fairs. 

Over the course of 6 months, I conducted sales of 30 exhibition booths ranging in size and price. 

Designed the website and all graphics, managed the social media and sourced sponsors.

With the assistance of my co-producer, curated four major exhibitions. 


Grace Hartigan Exhibition, curated by Michael Klein and Hart Perry, first large scale museum quality exhibition of Grace Hartigan in 50 years.

Hecho en Cuba – Curated by Yubal Márquez Fleites, Largest Cuban Art exhibition since the thawing of Cuban-US relations.

TIMEBAG – Colombia Now, TIMEBAG’s USA debut exhibition.

Due to rising prices and oversaturation and “Art Fair Fatigue”, I decided to no longer produce fairs in Miami during Miami Art Basel.
