PRIZM PERFORM

In 2017, Nyugen Smith(USA/Trinidad/Haiti) and Marvin Fabien (Dominica/Martinique) presented, Lest We Forget, a multi-sensory performance derived from their on-going dialog related to the impacts of hurricanes and climate change in the Caribbean and the most venerable parts of the United States. Marvin Fabien had a penchant for, through his hypnotic use of sound, conjuring the aesthetics of the popular music culture of the Caribbean whilst simultaneously rendering hair raising Digital Performances that address key issues affecting the Caribbean region. Fabien was easily becoming an indelible force in the continued development of contemporary practice in the Caribbean/Global South. May we continue to remember his work through our continued efforts to amplify Diasporic narratives and perspectives.

PRIZM 2022

PRIZM returns with its long-awaited in-person format to celebrate its tenth-anniversary edition, taking place from November 29th through December 4th, 2022, and virtually from November 29th through December 12th. A Preview for our Patrons will take place from November 25th to 28th, 2022. PRIZM Art Fair 2022 will be available for online viewing through prizm.art and Artsy.net. Film screenings and PRIZM’s panel program will be available through the fair’s website and in person at our satellite partner venue, the Little Haiti Cultural Center.

To celebrate our 10th Anniversary year, curated by William Cordova, Marie Vickles, and Mikhaile Solomon, Prizm presents Vernacular À la Mode, with presentations by select galleries and artist exploring how vernacular modes of artmaking originating in global African contexts have influenced the cultivation of fine art practice worldwide.

Prizm 2022 will traverse Miami’s urban Core with our Main Fair located in the Miami Design District at 4220 N. Miami Ave and our Global Caribbean Pavilion Satellite located at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in partnership with the Little Haiti Cultural Center and the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance.
