Founded in SoHo in 1989, Paul Kasmin Gallery cultivates a program in which the historic figures of Post-War and American Modernism are in meaningful dialogue with the evolving practice of both emerging and established contemporary artists.
The gallery represents and advocates for the legacy of such estates as Constantin Brancusi, William N. Copley, Max Ernst, Simon Hantaï, Jane Freilicher and Robert Motherwell. It has developed the careers of and continues to represent significant contemporary artists such as Walton Ford, Robert Indiana, Iván Navarro, Les Lalanne and Roxy Paine.
With three spaces in Chelsea, New York, the gallery mounts ambitious parallel exhibitions alongside participation in major art fairs worldwide. It will inaugurate a new gallery space at 509 West 27th Street in late 2018.
The gallery is dedicated to furthering academic research engaged with its artists and their oeuvres, most recently publishing monographs focusing on the relationship between the work of Alexander Caro and Jules Olitski; David Hockney’s early drawings; the history of the Alexandre Iolas Gallery; Henry Geldzahler’s seminal 1969 The New York School exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, and the famed Impasse Ronsin studio complex in Paris.
