Here’s the thing, it’s 1989 and collector Antonio Ascaso establishes the headquarters for a new art gallery in Valencia, Venezuela. The purpose is to showcase prominent co fellow Latin-American emerging artists and give them visibility in the competitive world-class art world.

In 2002, Ascaso Gallery inaugurates a 21,500 square foot four-story building designed by Jaime Cardenas in Caracas and fastly becoming one of the most relevant Latin American Gallery in the Americas. Ascaso Gallery emphasized in museum-quality exhibitions and projecting Venezuelan consecrated maestros as well as contemporary artists.

By December 2010, the gallery opens a third location in the trendy Wynwood Arts District of Miami, Florida. The gallery grows while diversifying as a referential space into modern and contemporary art.

With a program that has run for thirty years supporting artists like Jesús Soto and Carlos Cruz-Diez since their early stages, in 2019 Ascaso Gallery relocates to a new exhibition space in the Arts & Entertainment District.

With this major movement, the Gallery seeks to deliver an ambitious program dedicated to Modern and Contemporary Art and its capacity within the local and international context. This new atmosphere holds an 11,500 square foot space in Downtown Miami, Florida, near the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts just a few blocks North from The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM).
