About Prizm
                                                                                
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.
