Luis Miret (1959–2017)

Luis Miret, dealer, curator, and longtime director of Galería Habana in Cuba, died Thursday, May 11, at the age of fifty-eight. Sean Kelly Gallery has confirmed his passing.

Miret served as director of Galería Habana, the department of international relations at the National Council of Visual Arts, and the department of economics at the Fondo Cubano de Bienes Culturales.

“Miret’s life-long commitment to the arts and culture of his home country is largely responsible for the global recognition of contemporary Cuban art today,” Sean Kelly Gallery said in a statement.
