After more than six years and just twenty-six shows at The Wynwood Building in Wynwood Art District, artmedia GALLERY re-opens its doors at a new venue with the presentation of Waking up in Miami. Five Photographers on the Road. At the gallery, we are excited to inaugurate this new space and begin another cycle of exhibitions with our first group show of artists who have exhibited individually in our previous location.

As the title of the exhibit indicates, Miami is the big stage where these photographers have conducted their artistic explorations. All of them are distant from the stereotypical perception of Miami as a magical and paradisiacal city that functions as a shopping center and an oceanfront resort. They are also far from the labels conferred to Miami as a big inter-American business hub, the capital of the Americas or many others closer to the marketing than to the personal, cultural, or political concerns expressed by the locals.
