Now Be Here #3 | Miami Artists

Be Here Now Miami

On December 10, 2016 over 300 female artists working in Miami and South Florida arrived to PAMM for a historic group photograph. The gathering became the third event in Now Be Here series organized by a Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt.

Last summer Kim launched the project with the goal to give women a chance “to stand up and be counted.” Gender inequality has been at the center of art-world discussion for a long time now. But even with the noticeable improvements female artists comprise mere 30 percent of all US artists represented by galleries.

It was an opportunity for us to capture a moment where we stood with each other in all of our diversity. Kim Schoenstadt

While Miami’s own Gesi Schilling was chosen to take the official photographs of Now Be Here #3 we went behind the scenes to meet some of the Miami girls face-to-face (photos by Ekaterina Juskowski).
