El Espacio 23 is a contemporary art space founded by collector and philanthropist Jorge M. Pérez. Located within a repurposed 28,000 square foot warehouse in Miami’s Allapattah neighborhood, El Espacio 23 serves artists, curators and the general public with regular exhibitions, residencies and a variety of special projects drawn from the Pérez Collection.
The inaugural exhibition, ‘Time for Change: Art and Social Unrest in the Jorge M. Pérez Collection’, focuses on the notion of art and the artist as an agent for social change that can explore the conflicts and contradictions of contemporary society. An interest in the marginalized aspects of society and history ties together the nearly 100 works by over 80 artists .
