The Gallery




Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery opened its doors in Santo Domingo in 1995 with a focus on supporting the new artistic directions from the Dominican Republic, Latin America and the Caribbean. From 2006 to 2010 the gallery established itself in the Wynwood Art District of Miami. In 2016 it opens a branch in New York at the heart of Lower East Side in Manhattan. For over two decades, with Santo Domingo as its main platform, and faithful to its aesthetic proposal supporting the innovative, the irreverent and the extravagant, it has organised a series of exhibitions in galleries and museums in the great art capitals of the world, while also taking part in several prestigious international art fairs among them, ARCO 1997, Madrid; where the gallery was invited and its participation was curated by Octavio Zayas. It has also been part of ArteBa, Buenos Aires; Zona MACO, Mexico; CONTEXT Art Miami during Art Basel, and has been invited twice to VOLTA NY during the Armory Show, featuring a solo show by artist Gerard Ellis, as well as PULSE Miami, SCOPE Miami/New York, and lastly MiART, Milan, where the gallery featured two solo shows, by García Cordero and Bedia respectively. Additionally the gallery participated in KIAF, Korea; where it was invited to the Latin American Pavillion, and PINTA London, exhibiting “Black & White/ Rock n’ Roll”, by García Cordero, among other international participations. In 2002, Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery- in conjunction with the MOLAA (Long Beach, CA)-organized and curated “Human Conditions” by García Cordero and in 2010, organized and co-curated “Global Caribbean II: Caribbean Trilogy, Focus on the Greater Antilles” featuring works by García Cordero, José Bedia and Edouard Duval-Carrié, which was part of Art Basel’s Public Program Special Event. In 2010, 2011 and 2013, Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery was awarded the “Best Exhibition” prize by the  Association of Art Critics.
