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.
