"Historic Process/Contemporary Visions" at Dina Mitrani Gallery: A Reminder to See AND Do

Dina Mitrani, along with potential clients, reflected in the mirrored surface of a daguerrotype by photographer Curtis Wehrfritz. The daguerreotype is created when a positive image is imprinted directly on its silvered surface; Photo by Seanica Howe. Recently I had an artist, a very successful sculptor actually, sit me down and explain to me the loss of the ability to "do" in our society. Do you know how to make your grandmother's best meal? I don't either, but in the house in which I was raised, one set at the end of a dirt road in a tiny farming community, it was fried chicken and w... [more]

Watchlist Artist: Kanako Sasaki

Dina Mitrani Gallery is pleased to present Kanako Sasaki: Illuminations (how not to forget) with an artist talk on Thursday April 11th at 7pm. The exhibition, the artist’s second solo show at the gallery, will be on view through May 24th and consists of photographic images as well as a video.

Watchlist Artist: Alexandra Rowley

Dina Mitrani Gallery is pleased to present 'Alexandra Rowley: Process', the artist's second solo exhibition at the gallery. The photographs in the exhibition are a myriad of images, figurative and abstract alike, illustrating the concept of transformation. The artist explores the experience of “process” through different media and materials including her body, her studio, her home, her year-old child and the planet. The work speaks of the endless cycles of creation, fruition, and destruction. The exhibition includes small polaroids of the artist studio's blotched walls and painted floors and larg... [more]

An Artist's Work Is Never Done

by Eduardo Alexander Rabel
Alexandra Rowley's current show at Dina Mitrani Gallery brings together photography, ceramics and sound to create an appealing, personal meditation on the many small acts of transformation that make up our daily lives. The first two images that greet the viewer are a striking pair of larger-than-life photographic prints, each depicting a colorful, ornate plate enlarged against a solid black background. These decorative plates are shiny and attractive, but what is most interesting about them is that several large pieces have broken off from each one. The pieces have been arranged next to each pla...

A Homey Gaze

by Kirsten Bengtson-Lykoudis
Dina Mitrani’s compact Wynwood gallery space has been exhibiting cutting edge contemporary photography since opening its doors in November of 2008. Making use of a space that once housed her father’s clothing factory and years of curatorial experience gleaned in New York auction houses and galleries, Mitrani shows provocative photo-based work that includes her engaging current exhibition of vibrant autobiographical color prints by Florida based artist Peggy Levison Nolan, which runs through April 23. At first glance, the photographs in (THANKS BUT I’M) JUST LOOKING, have an understated simpli... [more]

Wandering Imagination

by ArtSlant Team
From the Press Release: In her series Wanderlust, Kanako Sasaki explores her own imaginative world influenced by traditional Japanese novels, Ukiyo-e paintings and childhood memories. Within her surreal and eccentric settings, Sasaki’s characters, usually herself, evoke ideas of isolation, escape and uninhibited freedom. The juxtaposition of bleak emotion within a fantastical landscape leaves the viewer mesmerized with wonderment. Sasaki’s work also comments on issues such as the female experience, loss of innocence, hopeless romance and how Japanese culture is viewed from... [more]

Warrior Woman of Wynwood

by Nancy Jones
      Dina Mitrani settles in behind her desk at her Miami Wynwood gallery for an interview.  “Would you like to sit here on the couch?” she says.  “No, wait, that doesn’t look comfortable.  How about this chair over here near me.” “Oh that’s good,” I say.  “This is closer.” For weeks as a South Florida transplant from New York, I’ve been hoping to investigate this art hot-spot called Wynwood and get some perspective from a pioneer.  Luckily I find one of those born-and-bred-in-Miami, flees-for-years to New York-Paris-Madrid, then-returns-to-Miami types.  From our first meeting at her gallery,...
