Created in 1974 by the heiress Philippa de Menil (daughter of the great patron Dominique, who created the Menil Collection of Houston) and her husband, Heiner Friedrich, a German art dealer, the foundation's mission was " "extend the boundaries of the traditional museum" and meet the specific needs of the group of artists in which they saw "the contemporary Renaissance", this generation Judd, Flavin, Chamberlain who revolutionized American art.

Dia, for example, is behind the installation of Donald Judd's works in Marfa, Texas (later taken over by the Chinati Foundation) or Walter De Maria's New York Earth Room (literally: a full piece of land in a Soho building, whose visit is a Zen experience).

Dia has refocused today on what it does best: organizing in-depth exhibitions, ordering installations in situ, and expanding her collection.

If the exhibitions are held in the district of Chelsea, the stronghold of the foundation, the collections are visited since 2003 in the sublime Beacon satellite, an hour and a half from New York, in a gigantic former factory Nabisco rehabilitated - the foundation is also at the root of this trend, to renovate industrial buildings to house contemporary art.
