Dimensions Variable | West Wing
100 NE 11th Street
Miami, FL 33132
P2V Antoine Lefebvre & P. Scott Cunningham     
An exhibition space interested in advancing artistic discourse in Miami.  The gallery provides a forum for contemporary art since 2009. Their focus is to invite national and international artists to exhibit and discuss their work along side Miami based artists. Dimensions Variable are a Knight Arts Challenge Grant recipient from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The gallery is a pioneer of the exodus from the Design District and increasingly unaffordable Wynwood to downtown Miami. Since relocating to the downtown Arthouse building last year, Dimensions Variable has continued expanding its brand of conceptually provocative and experimental offerings, drawing not only art lovers but also other local talent to join them in the neighborhood.
Dimensions Variable is run by Adler Guerrier, Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova and Frances Trombly.
Mike Diana: Miami or Bust  
100 Ne 11th St.
Miami, FL 33132 
In 1994, underground cartoonist, filmmaker, amateur publisher and First Amendment champion Mike Diana became the first artist ever to receive a criminal conviction for obscenity for artwork in the United States. When Mike Diana was 9 years-old, his family moved from Geneva, New York to Largo, Florida. He began to draw constantly, becoming a fan of underground comics as a teen. Soon after graduating high school, he began printing his own comics, including the series, Boiled Angel, which grew to 300 subscribers mostly in cities outside of of Florida. This is a true feat, considering that this was a time before online social media. In 1991, a copy ended up in the hands of a California law enforcement officer who falsely linked Diana with the then unsolved Gainesville student murders. The FBI was alerted, Diana was investigated but Diana was ultimately cleared of all involvement. However, the hysterics continued.
The trial judge found the work “patently offensive” and stated,
“The evident goal of the appellant’s publication is to portray shocking and graphic pictures of sexual conduct so it will be noticed. If the message is about victimization and that horrible things are happening in our society, as the appellant alleges, the appellant SHOULD HAVE created a vehicle to send his message that was not obscene.”
