The wary tango between Miami artists and its real estate developers has welcomed a new dance partner. Dimensions Variable, a highly regarded artist-run alternative exhibition space, has ended its search for a fourth location in six years.

Its home come September will be the nearly 3,000 square feet Centre Gallery on the downtown campus of Miami Dade College, the largest community college in the country, with over 165,000 students. Its new agreement with Dimensions Variable includes an eight-year lease rent-free, as well as the promise of programming independence for the husband-and-wife duo, the artists Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova and Frances Trombly, who have run the venue since its beginnings in 2009.
