BODE is pleased to share that José Yaque is a current resident at El Espacio 23 in Miami, Florida. El Espacio 23 is a contemporary art space founded by collector and philanthropist Jorge M. Pérez. Located within a repurposed 28,000 square foot warehouse in Miami’s Allapattah neighborhood, El Espacio 23 serves artists, curators and the general public with regular exhibitions, residencies and a variety of special projects drawn from the Pérez Collection.
El Espacio 23 houses three apartments and a shared work space reserved for residency programs. The residency includes living space, shared studio space, and a production budget for artists and curators across various stages in their career, with a diverse range of disciplines and ethnic backgrounds. Programming is year-round and the length of the stay depends on the interest of the curator or the complexity of the artists’ projects.
