Skarstedt has announced that it will be opening a new gallery on New York’s Upper East Side in March 2019. Skarstedt will be taking over the historic 25,000-square-foot property at 19 East 64th Street, which was purpose-built as an art gallery in 1932 and designed by renowned architect Horace Trumbauer.
This will be Skarstedt’s third location adding to the existing New York space at East 79th Street on the former site of Paul Rosenberg & Co’s legendary dealership, and their London gallery at 8 Bennet Street in the heart of St James. Architect Francis D’Haene has been appointed to oversee the remodelling of the new space. The new gallery presents a special opportunity for Skarstedt, which was founded by Per Skarstedt in 1992, to expand upon its current exhibition program, providing a unique platform for the artists and estates that the gallery represents. In celebration of the occasion, the inaugural exhibition will bring together classic works by the artists with whom Skarstedt has been working for over 20 years.
Skarstedt gallery represents George Condo, Eric Fischl, KAWS, David Salle, Sue Williams and the Estate of Martin Kippenberger and works with the following artists and estates: Georg Baselitz, JeanMichel Basquiat, Willem de Kooning, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Lucio Fontana, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, Mike Kelley, Yves Klein, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Juan Mun?oz, Albert Oehlen, Richard Prince, Thomas Schu?tte, Cindy Sherman, Rosemarie Trockel, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, and Christopher Wool.
