For over forty years, Marian Goodman Gallery has played an important role in introducing European artists to American audiences and helping to establish a vital dialogue among artists and institutions working internationally. Marian Goodman Gallery was founded in New York City in late 1977. In 1995 the gallery expanded to include an exhibition space in Paris and in 2014 an exhibition space in London. In late 2016 she realised her dream of opening a bookstore and project space in Paris.
In 1965, prior to the establishment of the gallery, Marian Goodman was a founder of Multiples, Inc. which published prints, multiples, and books by leading American artists, such as Richard Artschwager, John Baldessari, Dan Graham, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist and Andy Warhol. From 1968 to 1975, Multiples worked with European artists, introducing early editions by Joseph Beuys, Marcel Broodthaers, Blinky Palermo and Gerhard Richter to American audiences.
In 1974, after starting to work closely with Marcel Broodthaers, Goodman tried to find a gallery to represent him in New York. America’s knowledge of contemporary European art was scant at this time due to a lack of travel, exposure and exchange of information. She could not find a gallery for Broodthaers and decided to open a gallery of her own to show his work alongside that of other European artists.
Since then, Goodman has used her gallery to show artists who are leaders of their generation: Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Chantal Akerman, Giovanni Anselmo, John Baldessari, Nairy Baghramian, Lothar Baumgarten, Dara Birnbaum, Christian Boltanski, Marcel Broodthaers, Maurizio Cattelan, James Coleman, Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon Tacita Dean, Rineke Dijkstra, Luciano Fabro, David Goldblatt, Dan Graham, Pierre Huyghe, Christina Iglesias, Amar Kanwar, William Kentridge, Steve McQueen, Julie Mehretu, Marisa Merz, Annette Messager, Juan Muñoz, Maria Nordman, Gabriel Orozco, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Gerhard Richter, Anri Sala, Matt Saunders, Thomas Schütte, Tino Sehgal, Ettore Spalletti, Thomas Struth, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Niele Toroni, Adrián Villar Rojas, Danh Vō, Jeff Wall, Lawrence Weiner, Francesca Woodman and Yang Fudong.
Goodman Gallery is an international contemporary art gallery with locations in Johannesburg, Cape Town and London. The gallery represents artists whose work confronts entrenched power structures and inspires social change.
Goodman Gallery has held the reputation as a pre-eminent art gallery on the African continent for over half a century. It has been pivotal in shaping contemporary South African art, bringing David Goldblatt, William Kentridge, David Koloane, Sam Nhlengethwa and Sue Williamson to the world’s attention for the first time during the apartheid era.
Liza Essers has brought more than 30 international artists to the gallery roster since she became owner and director in 2008. Goodman Gallery has a global programme working with established artists from South Africa, the next generation of significant voices from the continent, as well as prominent international artists engaged in a dialogue with the African context. Some of these artists include Kapwani Kiwanga, Grada Kilomba, Yinka Shonibare CBE, Lisa Brice, Candice Breitz, Mikhael Subotzky, Hank Willis Thomas, El Anatsui, Ernesto Neto, Alfredo Jaar, Shirin Neshat and Ghada Amer.
Critical to this programme has been the introduction of two ongoing curatorial initiatives: In Context, which explores tensions of place and belonging; and South-South, which considers connections between artists from the ‘global south’. Goodman Gallery’s expansion to London furthers this mission to confront dominant historical narratives and to contribute to contemporary art discourse and social repair.
Goodman Gallery has a legacy of facilitating broader social access to art, serving in an institutional capacity through its public programming, publishing, and education. The gallery and its artists have a history of supporting NGOs committed to advocating for human rights. In 2019, Goodman Gallery has partnered with Witkoppen Health and Welfare Clinic to raise funds for their work providing first-rate medical and welfare services to under-serviced populations in Johannesburg.
Goodman Gallery first participated in Art Basel in 1982 and has featured on the Frieze Art Fairs since 2013.
Krakow Witkin Gallery features contemporary art of all media by emerging and established regional, national and international artists as well as representing several estates. The overall focus is on Minimal, reductivist and conceptually-driven works that have been made from 1950 to the present. Barbara Krakow first opened a gallery in 1959, exhibiting Ellsworth Kelly as early as 1965, Sol LeWitt in 1971 and being the first gallery in the US to show Joseph Beuys. Since 2004, Krakow has partnered with Andrew Witkin and in 2017, the gallery’s name changed to Krakow Witkin Gallery. The gallery co-represents the estates of Sol LeWitt and Fred Sandback. Since the 1980’s, it has published catalogue raisonnés of numerous artists’ prints, such as those by Kiki Smith, Sol LeWitt and most recently, Mel Bochner.
Located on Boston’s Newbury Street, Krakow Witkin Gallery presents two exhibitions simultaneously, one in the larger gallery and one in the smaller space. These shows change every six weeks. Along with this programming, the gallery has an ongoing project, One Wall, One Work, where a single work is exhibited on an isolated wall, thus providing artists and viewers the experience of seeing an isolated work (often-times some form of installation), as well as the smaller and larger exhibitions in the other two spaces. This spectrum of viewing opportunities is a key part of the gallery’s mission to not only present and promote artists and artworks it believes in, but to help provide enlightening experiences for those of varying knowledge- and experience-bases.
