Founded by Juan Carlos Arcila-Duque, a photography and contemporary art collector, gallery owner and art advisor for over 20 years.
Under his curatorial direction, our online art gallery has selected and is working with a vast and diverse group of artist from all around the world, thus being able to represent different art media such as photographs, paintings, prints, and sculptures.
He was an early pioneer of photography in Miami with his Design District Art and Design Gallery a-d. There, he showed the works of seminal photographers Horst P. Horst, Peter Beard, Helmut Newton, Nobuyoshi Araki, Albert Watson, Sarah Moon, and his critically acclaimed "Monumental Nudes" show, among others. Mr. Arcila-Duque also curated the first retrospective of Horst P. Horst in America at the Forbes Museum in New York City. Since the advent of Art Basel Miami Beach, he served as a co-chairman of the Junior Host Committee.
