Exhibitions - Miami Art Museum

Looking at international art from the perspective of the Americas, MAM’s exhibition program brings together different cultural traditions as a reflection of the South Florida community and Miami’s unique location at the gateway of the Americas.

For every exhibition, MAM offers a range of educational activities and programs to engage audiences of all ages, including Visitors Galleries, spaces where museum goers can experience and reflect on the exhibitions through reading, writing, and hands-on activities. MAM also publishes Gallery Notes, free four-color brochures featuring essays by MAM curators.

MAM’s exhibition program is the primary vehicle through which MAM expresses its curatorial viewpoint and furthers Miami's growing national reputation as an innovative center for the arts. Since its inception in 1996, MAM has presented more than seventy exhibitions. Half of these were organized by MAM’s curatorial staff, making this program one of the most ambitious in the United States.

MAM's exhibitions are presented in three gallery spaces in three distinct series. MAM’s 10,000-square-foot Upper Level Gallery is the largest single exhibition space in South Florida, allowing MAM to generate and present large-scale exhibitions that otherwise would not be seen in the region. The 3,500 square-foot Plaza Level Gallery features MAM’s permanent holdings presented in thematic exhibitions that offer new ways of seeing and thinking about art and showcase Miami-based artists in an international context. MAM’s 1,500-square-foot New Work Gallery series presents never-before-exhibited or newly commissioned work by leading contemporary artists.
