There are photographs that strike me as insurmountable. An image of presumable lovers, falling hand in hand from the World Trade Center as it burned. The image of a Vietnamese girl, screaming from the burning effects of napalm. The pain these photographs elicit is debilitating and the experience of seeing them is voyeuristic, not productive. The act is over, the misery finished, but the image remains.
Galerie Lelong & Co. represents prominent contemporary artists and estates from the United States, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. This uniquely diverse group includes mid-career and established artists at the forefront of the international art world working across all media.
The gallery presents art that challenges viewers on multiple levels and diversifies dominant understandings of modern and contemporary art. While contemporary Latin American art has only recently begun to receive due recognition in the field, the gallery has been a key proponent of the region for decades, representing some of its most vital figures and presenting museum-quality exhibitions of their work. The gallery is proud to have represented Cildo Meireles, the Estate of Ana Mendieta, and Alfredo Jaar for over twenty years as well as the Estate of Hélio Oiticica for over a decade.
Galerie Lelong & Co. has also actively engaged in the cross-generational representation of women artists at a time when women continue to be underrepresented in the art world. Etel Adnan, Zilia Sánchez, and Carolee Schneemann have been exhibiting as early as the fifties or sixties, yet their impressive bodies of work and keen visual languages have just begun to be acknowledged. The gallery also supports several artists known for their socially engaged practices, such as Alfredo Jaar, Yoko Ono, Nancy Spero, and Krzysztof Wodiczko.
Contemporary sculpture is another strength of the gallery with artists such as Petah Coyne, Andy Goldsworthy, Jaume Plensa, and Ursula von Rydingsvard continually expanding the boundaries of three-dimensional expression. The gallery has a long history of working closely with prestigious museums and public institutions around the world to support the creation of new work, permanent public art projects, exhibitions both monographic and thematic, and publications on its artists.
Founded in Paris in 1981 by Daniel Lelong, Jacques Dupin, and Jean Frémon, the gallery in New York opened in 1985. Directed by Mary Sabbatino, Vice President and Partner, the gallery moved to its present ground-floor location in Chelsea in 2001. Galerie Lelong & Co. is a member of the Art Dealers’ Association of America, the most esteemed organisation of art galleries in the United States.
Since 2006 Galerie Thomas Schulte has been seated in the nineteenth-century Tuteur House in Berlin-Mitte. The landmark tripartite display window of the gallery’s nine-meter-high Corner Space was added to the building in 1913 by Hermann Muthesius, a famous early pioneer of German architectural modernism and founder of the Deutscher Werkbund.
Galerie Thomas Schulte–known as Galerie Franck + Schulte until 2000–was one of the first galleries to open in Berlin after Germany’s reunification. It quickly became known for its select exhibition program, which not only offered innovative and thought-provoking works by represented artists, but it also created a platform for pioneering international artists in Berlin’s newly re-emerging art scene. Over the years, Galerie Thomas Schulte has exhibited with such cutting-edge artists as Bas Jan Ader, Richard Artschwager, Alighiero e Boetti, Daniel Buren, Chuck Close, Helmut Federle, Michael Heizer, Rebecca Horn, Magdalena Jetelová, Johannes Kahrs, Joseph Kosuth, Jannis Kounellis, Sol LeWitt, Mark Lombardi, Roxy Paine, Pipilotti Rist, and Robert Smithson.
Galerie Thomas Schulte regularly participates in major international and local art fairs including Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, The Armory Show, ARCOmadrid, Gallery Weekend and Art Week Berlin.
Goodman Gallery is a contemporary art gallery with spaces in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Since opening in 1966, Goodman Gallery has helped shape contemporary South African art, and in the decade since Liza Essers took over as owner and director that tradition has extended beyond local borders. Today, the gallery plays a vital role in supporting international collaborations in South Africa and presenting art that enriches international dialogue around colonial legacies and contemporary geopolitics. This ethos is embodied in the gallery’s 2019 programme, which features solo exhibitions by Nolan Oswald Dennis, Samson Kambalu, Carla Busuttil, Misheck Masamvu, Sue Williamson and Carrie Mae Weems.
Alongside exhibiting represented artists, the gallery's curatorial programme has grown to include an ongoing series of research-oriented group exhibitions. These initiatives include In Context, which looks at the dynamics and tensions of place in reference to the African continent; South-South, which traces cross-cultural influence and divergence between countries from the ‘Global South’; and Working Title, a platform for emerging, independent production and thinking.
During South Africa’s apartheid years, Goodman Gallery established itself as a space committed to furthering a socially progressive agenda. In recent years, Goodman Gallery has made an effort to continue that tradition by dedicating a part of its programme to non-commercial projects that broaden accessibility to contemporary art through the realisation of ambitious projects in collaboration with public institutions. Recent examples of these collaborative efforts include exhibiting William Kentridge’s The Refusal of Time, and El Anatsui’s first solo exhibition in South Africa, Meyina, at the Iziko South African National Gallery in Cape Town, as well as a helping realise the major installation The Sound of Silence, by Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar at the Wits Art Museum.
Chilean-born artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar is celebrated for his poetic yet unflinching address of global injustices, political prejudice and tragedy. The recipient of numerous awards and accolades, Jaar was recently in Auckland, New Zealand, for the major group exhibition Space to Dream: Recent Art From South America, at the...
