Hello, how are you? Today, Miami Design District will show you the Best Art Galleries to visit during Art Basel in Miami!
When we think about Miami we think about different cultures, night life, beach, summer and a lot of fun. If you are planning of going to this amazing city to visit the Art Basel you need to know where to see art in Miami, from Miami Museums to Art Gallerie Showrooms in Miami.
Here are some of the Best Art Galleries to visit during Art Basel in Miami:
Dina Mitrani Gallery
Opened in late 2008, Dina Mitrani’s contempo photo emporium has become a must-visit sanctuary for genre lovers. Focused exclusively on photography, Mitrani’s eponymous gallery is a platform for emerging, midcareer, and established shutterbugs. Housed in what used to be her father’s clothing factory for four decades, Mitrani consistently delivers top-drawer shows, including one of our favorite Art Basel exhibits, “Willy Ronis: Paris,” which drew hordes of photography and art aficionados to Wynwood and reflected a critical program committed to showcasing both the classic and the contemporary.
Dina Mitrani Gallery, 2620 NW Second Ave., Miami; 786-486-7248
6th Street Container
This rectangular alt-asylum might not be where you would expect to discover a hotbed of invigorating exhibits, but the 6th Street Container’s odd configuration adds charm to its Little Havana location. Launched two years ago by indie curator and artist Adalberto Delgado and his partner Maria Amores, the gallery, located in a building housing a barbershop, a black-box theater, a dance studio, and several artist spaces, is curatorially driven and has earned a reputation for seamless solo and group shows and provocative performances presented on a monthly basis. Edgy in nature and always experimental while focusing on every conceivable genre of media, the 6th Street Container is at the forefront of cultural rebirth in Little Havana and a home for art outside the mainstream.
6th Street Container, 1155 SW Sixth St. (rear entrance through alley), Miami; 786-587-5279
Since it first opened its doors in 2009, this artist-run nonprofit has been a local favorite of art lovers searching for the challenging and thought-provoking. Dimensions Variable typically presents exhibitions by individual artists or collaborative efforts boasting local and visiting national and international talent. A Knight Challenge Grant winner, DV is also one of the recent spaces pioneering the nascent downtown Miami art scene. It is operated by Adler Guerrier, Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova, and Frances Trombly, whose project has become known for experimentation and exhibits that focus on addressing the DV space specifically. Whether they’re hosting artist residencies or workshops and forums on community building, the folks at DV have proven themselves fearless of pushing the boundaries.
Dimensions Variable, 100 NE 11th St., Miami; 305-607-5527
Debuting during Art Basel with a dozen murals in 2009, the late Tony Goldman’s “Street Museum” has grown to become arguably the greatest collection of urban murals in the nation and is certainly the most democratic expression of culture in Wynwood. Today, Goldman’s visionary project houses soaring opuses by artists from the United States, Brazil, the Ukraine, Greece, France, Japan, and Germany. Some of the marquee names at the Wynwood Walls include Os Gemeos, Retna, Kenny Scharf, Barry McGee, Friends With You, Swoon, and Ron English. If you’re looking for a one-stop fix to mainline art that truly intoxicates the senses, the Wynwood Walls is your can’t-miss ticket.
Wynwood Walls, 2528 NW Second Ave., Miami
Founded in 1998, Wynwood’s pioneer artist-run space quickly became a crowd magnet for locals eager to discover a bleeding-edge alternative to the hackneyed commercial scene. The alt-haven is celebrating its 15th anniversary of presenting risk-taking shows and has featured hundreds of local, national, and international names early in their careers. Since it planted its flag, Locust has mounted more than 125 large-scale solo and group exhibits and has grown to become the largest experimental contemporary arts organization in the Southeast while garnering widespread critical acclaim for our region. The nonprofit’s Out of the Box public art project delivers art to the masses, and its popular annual Smash and Grab fundraiser makes artwork from hundreds of artists affordable for wage slaves.
