Martin Z. Margulies is a real estate developer, philanthropist and art collector. In 1998, Margulies, along with his longtime curator, Katherine Hinds, began looking for a suitable space to display his growing collection. In 1999 they set up a warehouse space in the then-derelict Wynwood district of Miami to show his holdings of contemporary and vintage photography, video, sculpture and installation work. The space was extended in 2004 and now offers over 45,000 sq. ft of exhibition space.
