Gallery Diet moving out of Miami’s Wynwood District

Wynwood district’s Gallery Diet in Miami, will be relocating after eight years in November. Its new home will be located at 6315 Northwest 2nd Avenue between Little Haiti and Little River. The move comes from director Nina Johnson-Milewski desiring to own a space “[…] that was close enough people could get to, but it was less important for me to be part of someone else’s vision for a particular area, and more important to have a little compound that I could control.” The new space, composed of four buildings— a 1940s storefront-turned-church, two-story residence, and loft space total 5,000 square feet, in addition to a 15,000 square feet outdoor garden space. Architect and interior designer duo Charlap Hyman & Herrero will undertake the project. The first solo exhibition to take place in the new location will be dedicated to Nicolas Lobo, with the outdoor furniture show “Trees in Odite” being on show in the garden area. An artist residency is also in the works for the new space, where artists will be able to live and produce works for their upcoming shows. Gallery Diet is known for its educational and outreach components within the Wynwood district of Miami with the aim of creating a global dialogue. It worked with the likes of artists such as Joshua Abelow, Phong Bui and Mark...
