A retrofitted Cuban strip mall... with art initiatives
Located In the heart of Miami, FL on the famous Calle Ocho street of Little Havana and next to Miami's iconic landmark, Versailles Cuban Restaurant. The space was formerly occupied with Cuban style bodegas such as the original Farmacia Luis that occupied the building's corner.
El Espacio was used as an art space for an Art Basel concurrent exhibition, "Wayside of Versailles" in December 2017.
For the 2018 exhibition "La Bodega y Mas," it will remain closed and be used as a backdrop to highlight contemporary art.
The space is closed to the public and only accessible for upkeep and maintenance
Future plans for El Espacio remains underway as a full development project will be overtaking the block.
