Established in New York, in 1996, Andrew Kreps Gallery is owned by Andrew Kreps, with Liz Mulholland as partner and senior director and Alice Conconi as senior director also. It initially focused on fore-fronting emerging American contemporary artists before broadening its scope to include international artists. Many of those international artists have had their debut exhibitions in the United States or New York at the gallery. Building its reputation along these lines, in 2017 the gallery was accepted into the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA).Read More
For nearly 20 years Andrew Kreps Gallery remained centred around the same block in Chelsea, New York, making one big move down the road in 2013 from 525 West 22nd Street to two spaces at 535 and 537 West 22nd Street. In September 2019, relocating from the long-established gallery-rich neighbourhood of Chelsea, Andrew Kreps Gallery opened its new home on Cortlandt Alley in Tribeca in Lower Manhattan. Andrew Kreps Gallery also now jointly operates a space nearby on Walker Street with Bortolami and kaufmann repetto. While Krep’s Cortlandt Alley space offers a traditional gallery setting, the shared Walker Street location provides a raw and simple architectural space that allows for an expanded range of exhibitions.
Andrew Kreps Gallery currently represents over 30 artists of international and American backgrounds and from a range of disciplines. Between the mixture of mid-career and established artists, the practices exhibited include everything from painting, sculpture, and installation to conceptual, performance, and video art. Picking out and supporting emerging talent, the gallery has come to work with several prominent American artists including Andrea Bowers—whose large-scale Open Secret (2018) installation dedicated to the anti-predatory #MeToo movement was part of Art Basel Unlimited in 2019—as well as Cheyney Thompson, Robert Melee, Roe Ethridge, Darren Bader, and Frank Benson. Andrew Kreps has also worked for an extended time with burgeoning international artists such as Klaus Weber, Goshka Macuga, and Hito Steyerl. Recent additions to the gallery’s roster include Camille Blatrix and He Xiangyu. The gallery also exhibits the works and manages the estates of departed contemporary artists such as Robert Overby and Bruno Munari.
Well-connected to American and international art circles, Andrew Kreps Gallery regularly participates in several major art fairs including Art Basel in Miami Beach, Basel, and Hong Kong; The Armory Show, New York; Frieze New York; miart, Milan; and FOG Design+Art, San Francisco. Artists represented by the gallery exhibit regularly at prominent international venues across the United States and Europe, and participate in exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale; the Bienal de São Paulo; documenta, Kassel; and the Whitney Biennial, New York.
