Meet Nina Johnson Milewski of Nina Johnson in Little Haiti
Today we’d like to introduce you to Nina Johnson Milewski.
Nina, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’m a Miami native, who began my career in the arts when I was fifteen with an internship at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery. After several years away, I returned home and opened Gallery Diet in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood in the Fall of 2007. My goal has always been to provide artists with a support structure, a space in which they can show their work. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with incredibly talented and intelligent people such as Nicolas Lobo, Jonas Mekas, Betty Woodman, Awol Erizku, Emmett Moore… I would fill this page and still not have enough room to list them all!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I’m incredibly fortunate to do what I love, nothing valuable in life comes without a challenge and we learn from life’s most painful situations. I wouldn’t call any particular or specific moment out, suffice to say whatever bump I’ve come across; the gallery is stronger for it.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Nina Johnson is a contemporary art gallery, now located in a four-building compound in Little Haiti. We show emerging artists from around the world. Over the years we have shown established artists late in their careers and often given emerging artists their first solo shows, the program is far-reaching and we pride ourselves in having built relationships with talented people around the world.
