Prizm Art Fair

Organized in three exhibitions curated by Mikhaile Solomon, and William Cordova, and introducing its inaugural exhibition of presentations by select national and international galleries from Miami to Lagos, Prizm will present a global program examining the articulation of narratives in Africa and the African Diaspora through varying degrees of currency; the most overt being economic currency, but also, cultural, social, political, and even spiritual currencies.

Prizm’s extant special sections, Prizm Preview, Prizm Panels, Prizm Film, and Prizm Perform, will boast an international culinary experience in partnership with Barbados Tourism and Marketing, thought provoking conversations with industry leaders and performance that defies and expands our conventional understanding of visual arts practice.

PRIZM PREVIEW

To herald in the beginning of Prizm Art Fair during Miami Art Week,  Prizm hosts our signature cocktail event, Prizm Preview. Visitors can enjoy the fair with the syncopated rhythms masterfully presented by our selected performers. Performers include King Britt and DJ Kumi.

PRIZM PERFORM

Challenging conventional modes of artmaking, performance art has long been a medium within which artist can utilize a different format to explore, challenge, and dissect a range of ideas and frameworks. Prizm Perform offers this alternative mode of arts practice with works presented artists from African and the African Diaspora.  Click on the link below to view Prizm 2015’s performance piece by Jefferson Pinder featuring Lionz of Zion.
