Prizm Art Fair

Miami, FL- A talented collective of established and emerging artists from locales as varied as Trinidad and Tobago to Washington D.C. and New York will be showcased at the third annual Prizm Art Fair. The Prizm Art Fair will be held December 1-13, 2015 at 7300 Biscayne Blvd in the Miami Modern District. Prizm Preview will take place on Tuesday December 1st from 7pm – 10pm. This year three curators will present works that highlight experimentations in contemporary visual art practices, including painting, sculpture, photography, multi-media installations and performance art.
 
Held during Art Basel week, the Prizm Art Fair will showcase a diverse group of artists who reflect the depth of talent within the transnational art market. This year, Prizm has assembled a curatorial committee that includes Mikhaile Solomon, Rosie Gordon-Wallace and A.M. Weaver.  They will bring together an ensemble of contemporary voices that address issues and explore themes affecting people of color globally.  Issues such as racial injustice and lived realities and alternative futures will be broached through film, photography and painting. The ancestral cord that connects the African Diaspora will be explored in an expansive installation.
 
Prizm Art Fair will feature the works of contemporary artists including: Dr. Deborah Willis Ph.D., Amber Robles-Gordon, T. Eliott Mansa, Asser Saint-Val, Brianna McCarthy, Olalekan Jeyifous, Wesley Clark, Dr. Margot Sawyer, Brianna McCarthy, LaToya Hobbs, Martha Jackson Jarvis, Tyrone Mitchell and Alexis Peskine, just to name a few. The select artists are truly redefining their world by bringing into focus socio-political and cultural issues pertinent to the people of African descent in our global community.
