Artformz was founded in 2004, and inaugurated its first art exhibition in a 1,300 sq. ft storefront space in the Miami Design District. The gallery is an alternative, as well as an addition to, the existing private gallery venues in the Miami area. The space is an experimental venue whose mission is to encourage and assist artists and curators to exhibit, develop, and advance innovative art of diverse media and content.
In the 4 years Artformz resided in the Design District, 500+ artist portfolios were reviewed and 90 artist's works were exhibited. Commencing its 5th year, Artformz relocated to the Wynwood Arts District. Artist's and curator's submissions continue to be reviewed and selected proposals are accepted into the gallery programming contingent on available space. Decisions are based on the quality of the artists' portfolios when presented in a strong, clear and concise manor, and a professional record that demonstrate an ability to enhance the collective effort. Today Artformz Artists are a group of approximately 12 artists, carefully selected by a jury of their peers.
For over 6 years Artformz has maintained a strong sense of artistic vision, ambitious approaches to the creation and presentation of work, and the willingness to be experimental, combined with a passion for creative success. Artformz is interested in developing compelling ideas, and aims to assist artists in taking a more active roll in their cultural community and personal career.
