The Bay area is home to some of the greatest collectors and collections of contemporary art in the world. With the opening of Gagosian San Francisco, we are excited to participate more fully in this informed and lively art scene with our dynamic program of exhibitions and events. We salute SFMoMA’s key role in cultivating a vital context for contemporary art and its ideas, and we look forward to working in direct proximity to this most distinguished institution in its bold new era.
Gagosian Gallery has announced the opening of its new exhibition space in San Francisco, opening May 18, 2016, following the reopening of SFMoMA. The 4500 square-foot gallery, designed by Kulapat Yantrasast, founder of wHY, is located at 657 Howard Street, directly across the street from SFMoMA in the historic Crown Point Press Building that once housed the San Francisco Newspaper Company.
The inaugural exhibition at Gagosian San Francisco will focus on the relationship between drawing and sculpture, as embodied in the work of twentieth century artists, from Pablo Picasso to Joe Bradley. The exhibition will coincide with the reopening of SF MoMA.
Established by Larry Gagosian in 1980, Gagosian Gallery is a leading global network specializing in the exhibition and sale of modern and contemporary art, with sixteen galleries in nine major hotspots worldwide; a cosmopolitan team of art experts; and an unparalleled art program of contemporary art and landmark modern surveys, accompanied by scholarly books and catalogues. Gagosian participates in major art and book fairs around the world annually.
