Dina Mitrani Gallery
Miami, United States
After 20 years of experience in the international art world based in New York and Miami, Dina Mitrani opened her gallery in November of 2008 focusing exclusively on photography. The gallery’s mission is to create a platform where artists and art enthusiasts have the opportunity to appreciate and engage in artistic dialogues created by emerging and established photographers. Collaborations with independent curators and other art institutions to produce important photo-based exhibitions are an important element of the gallery’s program. Advisory services are available to novice and established collectors, both private and corporate.
Dina has a Bachelor’s in Art History from the University of Michigan and a Master’s from Hunter College in New York. Her professional career began at Latin American Client Services at Christie’s New York and continued to Mary-Anne Martin Fine Art and Throckmorton Fine Art, both in Manhattan. Her knowledge of photography expanded while working as a curator of Contemporary Latin American Photography at Throckmorton Fine Art, and while writing her thesis on the photographs of Gisele Freund. After moving back to Miami in 1998, she assisted in producing and curating an exhibition of photographs from the Martin Z. Margulies collection at the Art Museum at FIU.
In the meantime, Dina and her family have been working to help make the Wynwood Art District a thriving arts community. In what used to be her father’s clothing factory for 40 years, they have created artist studios, galleries and the Un-Parking Lot, an enclosed outdoor space available for events.
