This museum at Florida International University recently moved to a new, 46,000-square-foot space. It began in 1977 in a space of less than 3,000 square feet. Since then, it has built its physical space and permanent collection from private donations and through state and government agencies.
It includes exhibitions by artists in all media, including performance art. Recent exhibitions have featured the work of artist Jose Gurvich, artists’ portrayals of the Dalai Lama, and work by Indian artist Navjot Altaf.
The museum has recently begun to focus on and exhibit work by Latin American artists. It is currently working on collaborations and partnerships with other art institutes in Latin America. The institution is pursuing this aim to serve Miami’s strong Latino communities, as well as to draw international visitors.
