PRIZM is an annual art fair presentation that takes place over the
course of two weeks coinciding with Miami Art Week and producing
cultural events that run throughout the year. Founded by Mikhaile
Solomon in 2013, Prizm’s mission is to expand the spectrum of exhibiting
international artists from Africa and the African Diaspora, and
emerging markets that connect to the African Diaspora and reflect global
trends in contemporary art.
Each year the fair rotates location and works with different curators to
present salient works in solo presentations that highlight the
diversity in contemporary visual art practices today.
In addition to engaging nationally and internationally, Prizm has a
strong commitment to the local Miami cultural community. This goal can
be seen in this year’s location in Little Haiti/ Little River bringing a
wider audience to new and existing local art spaces. Through the fair
and ongoing programming throughout the year, Prizm provides a space for
cross cultural exchange, education and exhibition opportunities
highlighting the work of African artists and artists of the African
Diaspora who are often unrepresented by traditional galleries.
