C hristine Berry and Martha Campbell have many parallels in their backgrounds and interests. Both studied art history in college, began their careers in the museum world, and later worked together at a major gallery in midtown Manhattan. Most importantly, however, Berry and Campbell share a curatorial vision.
Both art dealers developed a strong emphasis on research and networking with artists and scholars during their art world years. They decided to work together, opening Berry Campbell Gallery in 2013 in the heart of New York's Chelsea art district, at 530 West 24th Street on the ground floor. In 2015, the gallery expanded, doubling its size with an additional 2,000 square feet of exhibition space.
Highlighting a selection of postwar and contemporary artists, the gallery fulfills an important gap in the art world, revealing a depth within American modernism that is just beginning to be understood, encompassing the many artists who were left behind due to race, gender, or geography-beyond such legendary figures as Pollock and de Kooning. Since its inception, the gallery has been especially instrumental in giving women artists long overdue consideration, an effort that museums have only just begun to take up, such as in the 2016 traveling exhibition, Women of Abstract Expressionism, curated by University of Denver professor Gwen F. Chanzit.
C astelli Gallery was founded by Leo Castelli in 1957 with a mission to exhibit emerging American avant-garde artists. Considered the most influential art dealer of the Post-War period, Leo Castelli had a gift for discovering new talents. Under his guide, the gallery became the epicenter of Pop Art, Minimal Art, Conceptual Art and Post-Minimal Art. The gallery has been home to, among others, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, John Chamberlain, Richard Pettibone, Robert Morris, Dan Flavin, Bruce Nauman, Richard Serra, Keith Sonnier, and Joseph Kosuth.
Castelli Gallery maintains two exhibition spaces in New York City, at 18 East 77th Street and 24 West 40th Street. Through exhibitions, publications, and events the gallery continues to promote the work of Pop, Minimal and Conceptual artists.
F ounded in 2011 in New York's West Village, Karma represents a growing roster of emerging, established, and multigenerational artists. The gallery handles work in all media, including painting, sculpture, photography, video, drawing, and printmaking. Its two current exhibition spaces are located in the East Village, where eight to ten exhibitions are presented each year, many of which are accompanied by Karma-published monographs and artist books.
K önig Galerie was founded in Berlin by Johann König in 2002, and currently represents 40 international emerging and established artists, mostly belonging to a younger generation. The program’s focus is on interdisciplinary, concept-oriented and space-based approaches in a variety of media including sculpture, video, sound, painting, printmaking, photography and performance. In May 2015, König Galerie took up St. Agnes, a monumental former church built in the 1960s in the Brutalist style, where museum-like exhibitions take place in two different spaces, the former chapel and nave. In 2017, König Galerie opened König London in a former car park in Marylebone, London. In November 2019 König Tokio opened in Japan presenting artists that are based in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
König Galerie regularly participates in international art fairs such as Art Basel fairs and Frieze Art fairs. The gallery has successfully placed works in a variety of private and public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Guggenheim Foundation. The artists represented have solo exhibitions with institutions worldwide, and regularly partake in prestigious group exhibitions, such as Documenta and the biennials in Venice, Berlin, New York and others. They have been awarded many important prizes, commissions and outdoor projects. In 2019 the gallery artist Natascha Süder Happelmann presented the artistic contribution for the German Pavilion at the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. Moreover, the gallery publishes a biannual magazine which features the represented artists and their communities.
F ounded by Dominique Lévy and Brett Gorvy, Lévy Gorvy cultivates a program devoted to innovation and connoisseurship in the fields of modern, postwar, and contemporary art. The gallery fosters continued dedication to the living artists and artists’ estates that it represents and offers a robust program of exhibitions and multidisciplinary events. Lévy Gorvy participates in major art fairs worldwide, and it produces ongoing art historical research and original scholarship, publishing exhibition catalogues, monographs, and other key publications. The gallery also offers advisory and collection management services, inspired by the vision, personal engagement, and tireless advocacy of the 20th century connoisseur dealers Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, Pierre Matisse, Leo Castelli, and Peggy Guggenheim. Lévy Gorvy maintains gallery spaces at 909 Madison Avenue in New York, in Mayfair, London, and in Central, Hong Kong. The Zürich office, Lévy Gorvy with Rumbler, offers bespoke private advisory services to collectors and institutions around the globe.
