Located in the heart of Miami Beach, the Robert Fontaine Gallery is a surviving cornerstone of the local art scene. One of the hippest and most internationally relevant art galleries in the city, it provides a platform for emerging, mid-career, established and master artists, ranging in historical scope from the origins of American Pop Art to the most current evolutions of digital media, conceptual installations and urban interventions.

The gallery will soon open its doors at a temporary location in Miami Beach with an exceptional Pop-Up show. Running for three months, this Pop-Up Group Exhibition will present some outstanding works by iconic artists, such as Alexander Calder, Francesco Clemente, Helen Frankenthaler, Jasper Johns, Alex Katz, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, but also the emerging ones, including Nick Gentry, Luis Lazo, Ashley Oubré, Peter Combe, Michal Mráz, Anthony Lister, and others.

The Pop-Up Show Preceding a Permanent Gallery Space

Located near the corner of Lincoln Road and Meridian Avenue on Miami Beach, the impressive 3000 square foot temporary Pop-Up space will coincide with the 16th Edition of Art Basel Miami Beach, the premier art show in the United State offering a premier platform for renowned artists and galleries.

In late February, the gallery will find a new permanent home in the highly anticipated Terranova building designed by the award-winning architect Allan Shulman. A new, three-story building will be located across the street from the Pop-Up venue.
