“ Yeelen is delighted to be a part of Art Wynwood, having such a platform from which to highlight the cultural diversity and creativity of our rapidly growing city is crucial to the conversation of Miami as an international crossroads. Yeelen has always been inclusive in this conversation and is proud to showcase Miami’s unique cultural legacies, its vibrant local colors, and at its heart, its people".
Yeelen is an incubator and art space dedicated to the development, promotion and expression of Contemporary Urban Culture.
Occupying an expansive 13,000+ square-foot converted industrial complex in Miami’s historic Little Haiti neighborhood, we focus on integration and introspection, offering our perspective of historically marginalized groups around the conversation of inclusion.
Yeelen sustains four exhibition spaces with a focus on figuration, realism, and social practice. By employing various media the Gallery is able to mount exhibitions of a dynamic and ambitious nature that reflect our contemporary society and the neighborhood we call home.
Since its inception in 2008, Yeelen’s aim has been to curate a program that is both a reflection of and an international voice for the local and national culture. By fostering relationships with its surrounding neighborhood, we are able to express the varied identities of the people within our cosmopolitan city. Yeelen pioneers exhibitions that enlighten the mind and expand our understanding of culture.
Yeelen represents and defends an international group of innovative artists whom retain independence and give a voice to the unheard.
