Dani Levinas was born in Buenos Aires in 1948. He moved with his family to Washington DC in 1980, and founded a publishing company. He is Chair Emeritus of the Board of Trustees of The Phillips Collection, the Unites States’ earliest modern art museum, created in 1921 with the collection of Duncan Phillips. He is currently a member of the boards of the Fundación Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid, and the The Orchestra of the Americas Group. Prior to this, he served on the Board of Trustees of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC.

Levinas has taken part in countless symposiums and conferences on collecting and trends in the contemporary art world.
