Prizm Art Fair – featuring artists representing the African Diaspora and Emerging Markets. A talented collective of established and emerging artists from locales as varied as the Democratic Republic of Congo to Washington D.C. will showcase contemporary art at the inaugural blockbuster Prizm Art Fair to be held December 5-8, 2013 at the Marquis Miami. The opening night reception will take place on December 5th from 11pm-2am and is open to the public. Admission is free. Prizm Art Fair is a collaborative effort between, Mikhaile Solomon, designer and arts advocate who is the founder of Prizm Art Fair and Marie Vickles, an independent curator, arts educator, and artist based in South Florida. Salient works presented will highlight the diversity evident in contemporary visual art practices including painting, sculpture and mixed media installations. The goal of Prizm Art Fair during Art Basel week is to showcase a diverse group of artists who reflect the depth of talent in emerging markets adding to the caliber of artists represented in South Florida. Ms. Solomon and Ms. Vickles are two women committed to creating a platform to ensure that Prizm Art Fair provides opportunities for artists of the African Diaspora, emerging markets and those inspired by the Diaspora within one of the biggest art destination events in the country.
Prizm Art Fair will feature the works of some of the most talented local and international artists of color and galleries including: Lerone Wifon, Amber Robles-Gordon, Addonis Parker, T. Eliott Mansa, Bayunga Kialeuka, Asser Saint-Val, Jerome Soimaud, Gallery Guichard: National Curator for the Bombay Sapphire Series and Yeelen Gallery. The select artists are actively engaged in perpetuating Miami’s growth as a cultural hub or 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.
