Marian Goodman Gallery

For over thirty 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 realized 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, Cristina 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.
