The Miami Rail provides critical coverage of arts, politics and culture.

By way of the Greek krinein, criticism is to call into crisis – to draw out the dialectic heart of the matter in any received idea. It is not a tool or a diversion. It is a fundamental, irreducible, absolute and essential approach to art and the world.

Miami is not just a place. Miami is a crisis. And The Miami Rail not just a publication, but a call to participate in the exquisite dimensions of that crisis. The writers we commission will rail against complacency, rail against ignorance, rail against the instrumentalization of our city as just another tourist destination. We will champion Miami as a boundless idea of diversity, innovation, free speech and art; an axis of the United States, Caribbean and Latin America; its verdant landscape ground zero for exploration and change.
