Founded in SoHo in 1989, Paul Kasmin Gallery cultivates a program in which historic figures of Post-War and 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 including Walton Ford, Robert Indiana, Iván Navarro, Les Lalanne and Roxy Paine.
With three spaces in Chelsea, New York, the gallery mounts ambitious concurrent exhibitions alongside participation in major art fairs worldwide. In Fall 2018, the gallery will open its newest and largest space at 509 West 27th Street, which will expand the gallery’s footprint and provide a platform to build upon our curatorial mission. The new building will also feature a planted roof purposefully designed for exhibiting monumental sculptures, which parallels the gallery’s well-known engagement in international public art projects.
The gallery is dedicated to furthering the academic research of its artists and their oeuvres. The gallery has published comprehensive scholarly books, including William N. Copley X-Rated, Simon Hantaï’s Blancs, Alexander the Great: The Iolas Gallery 1955-1987, Impasse Ronsin and the first English translated monograph-scale book of Max Ernst’s sculpture. In Spring 2018, the gallery will publish a catalogue raisonné on Lee Krasner’s Umber Paintings.
