Alejandra von Hartz Gallery opened in 2002, and was a pioneer in establishing itself in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami. Its mission is to promote and explore contemporary, non-objective, constructive and conceptual art by emerging and established artists of growing local and international reputation. To this end, we: explore relationships between Modernism and Contemporary Art; promote emerging artists, in both traditional and experimental exhibitions; promote established artists in their creative endeavor to produce new bodies of work; participate in art fairs worldwide, and serve as trusted consultants and advisors, to numerous collectors, museums, and other institutions. With a focus on Latin American art, and Geometric Abstraction, the gallery has always explored the ever expanding interconnectedness and creative dialogues of globalized contemporary art, while establishing connections with the city of Miami and its artists.
