What would become of our beloved River of Grass without the water that sustains it. What would Miami be without the remarkable arts community. Swampspace was launched in 2005 by native artist Oliver Sanchez. Presenting innovative visual arts and performance by varied artists, Swampspace delivers a unique experience for arts enthusiasts of all stripes. Swampspace is a distinct alternative venue recognized by the Knight Foundation for its enduring contribution to the arts. Critical writer Anne Tschida said, " Sanchez is likely the most talented and prolific Miami Artist you've never heard of." Social reporter Brett Sokol wrote "Miami's Best Kept Art Secret". But the truth is everyone knows about Swampspace and the wizard behind the curtain who is also recognized as a facilitator, fabricator and collaborator with a formidable list of contacts.
Because we're the preeminent artist run project space in Miami, Swampspace is known to be both unvarnished and sophistication. Because people are thirsty for culture and civility, they visit Swampspace like mariners to Morocco.
