A leading contemporary art gallery in Miami, Emerson Dorsch was founded by Brook Dorsch as Dorsch Gallery. A pioneering institution in the city, the gallery was the first to move to the city’s Wynwood District, where it is a central figure of its internationally acclaimed art scene.
In 2008, art historian and curator Tyler Emerson-Dorsch joined as partner, pushing its program to position the gallery at the forefront of the avant-garde discourse. To reflect this evolution in programming, and coinciding with a full renovation of its space, the gallery changed its name to Emerson Dorsch in 2013. The gallery fosters a diverse roster of emerging and established international artists who have exhibited at leading institutions throughout the world. It emphasizes artists who produce artworks that present an acute individual vision, while maintaining a proactive engagement in the greater artistic community through curatorial and academic pursuits.

Dorsch Gallery's program reflects the intersection of tastes and interests in the partnership of gallery founder Brook Dorsch and director Tyler Emerson-Dorsch. Together they represent emerging, mid-career and established artists and seek to present powerful and insightful exhibitions. Mr. Dorsch and Ms. Emerson-Dorsch seek to instigate a greater understanding and appreciation of what the arts can do, instilling in Miamians, by example, the importance of art patronage. With more than 3600 square feet of exhibition space, the gallery presents an ambitious program including solo presentations by gallery and visiting artists, lectures, and shows by visiting curators.
Widely acknowledged as a pioneer of Miami's art district Wynwood, Brook Dorsch was the first to move a commercial gallery to the then run-down warehouse district in 2000. His contributions span from organizing over 300 exhibitions, including those of large-scale sculpture and installations, to hosting important concerts and performances. He was co-founder of Sites Miami, an exhibition of outdoor sculpture at Lummus Park, Miami. He has been a board member of Tigertail Productions, and he was one of the founding members of the Wynwood Arts District. He is currently on the board of iSAW (Interdisciplinary Sound Arts Workshop).
Tyler Emerson-Dorsch joined the gallery in late 2008, after earning an MA from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. Ms. Emerson-Dorsch curated Classroom, a program of lectures and events in a flex space at Dorsch Gallery in 2008; nota bene, a group show at Dorsch Gallery in 2009; John Sanchez's MFA show at the Frost Museum at FIU; and The Importance of Daydreams, a group show in 2009 at World Class Boxing, the project space for Dennis and Debra Scholl's collection. She collaborated with Mr. Dorsch in putting together a thirty-year survey of Robert Thiele's work at Dorsch Gallery in 2009.
