Owner and Director
Dina Mitrani Gallery, Miami, FL, USA
Dina Mitrani is the owner and director of the Dina Mitrani Gallery in the Wynwood Art District in Miami, Florida. After 20 years of experience in the international art world based in New York, Madrid and Miami, Dina Mitrani opened her gallery in 2008 focusing exclusively on photography. The gallery exhibits work by emerging and mid-career international artists with a mission to create a platform where artists and art enthusiasts have the opportunity to engage in artistic dialogues and cultural enrichment. The gallery has been featured in international print and online publications and has received accolades such as “Best Gallery exhibition” by the Miami New Times in 2013.

Dina Mitrani is a pioneer in making the Wynwood neighborhood a thriving arts community. She is a co-founder of the Wynwood Art District Association, the Women of Wynwood, and a founding member, and treasurer of the Miami Art Dealers Association.

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 Christie’s in New York and while finishing her graduate studies, curated Latin American photography shows at Throckmorton Fine Art. After relocating back to Miami in 1999, she co-curated an exhibition of photographs from the Martin Z. Margulies Collection at the Art Museum at Florida International University. In 2012, Dina curated Re-Framing the Feminine: Photography from the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz at the Girls’ Club Collection in Fort Lauderdale.

In recent years, Dina has juried ARTslant’s photography competition, the MFA student exhibition at University of Florida, Photolucida’s Critical Mass competitions, and most recently, the Center for Fine Art Photography’s Water exhibition in Fort Collins, Colorado. She has participated as a reviewer in festivals such as Photolucida, the Palm Springs Photo Festival, Atlanta Celebrates Photography as well as the Miami Street Photography Festival. She leads emerging-artist workshops, gives gallery talks to various groups, including high school students, and has collaborated with independent curators and other art institutions to produce important photography exhibitions in the Miami area.

Dina’s interest in photography ranges from narrative and poetic to conceptual and sociological. She would like to see work by photographers that are appropriate for the gallery’s curatorial programming and aesthetic sensibilities. The gallery is not interested in stock, advertising, photojournalism or commercial photography.
