Colombian / American artist Jamie Martinez immigrated to Florida at the age of twelve from South America. He attended The Miami International University of Art and Design then moved to New York to continue his fine art education at The Fashion Institute of Technology and The Students Art League in NYC.

He is also the founder and director of The Border Project Space, which was recently featured in Hyperallergic’s top 15 shows of 2018.

Martinez has shown in Berlin, Brussels, Spain, Russia, Canada, Miami, California, and numerous galleries in New York City including Petzel Gallery, Galerie Richard, Whitebox NY, The Gabarron Foundation, Flowers Gallery, Elga Wimmer PCC, Foley Gallery, Rush Gallery and many more. He also participated in a group show curated by Vida Sabbaghi at the Queens Museum which was very well received by the museum and the press.

  1. […] Jamie Martinez also spoke to us previously back in October 2019. Last time we discussed his work and this time we took a deeper dive into The Border Project Space which is a non-political gallery space where immigrant artists can show their work. Martinez opened the roughly 200 sq ft space about two years ago. There he does show the work of some American artists, but the bulk of the exhibitions are dedicated to the work of immigrant artists. The space itself is in Brooklyn. There is a fresh spontaneity to the shows that happen in this space – often Martinez doesn’t himself know the theme for the next exhibition until it is nearly time to open. Through the Border Project Space, Martinez hopes to create a place where those from other countries and cultures can feel at home in a gallery space. To hear more about The Border Project Space, including a discussion of the criteria considered for the artists who exhibit there and how shows come together, listen to the complete interview. Special note – keep an eye on the Border Space Project Instagram for an autumn open call. […]
