Marian Goodman

Established gallerist with a roster of high-profile artists and spaces in New York, Paris and London

Goodman celebrated the 40th anniversary of her gallery this year: and with the likes of Pierre Huyghe, Yang Fudong and Adrián Villar Rojas on her books, the octogenarian still has her work cut out. Huyghe had
 the standout exhibit at Skulptur Projekte Münster, Yang had a solo at OCAT Xi’an and Villar Rojas had three projects, ranging from the Met’s roof garden commission in New York to solo shows at Kunsthaus Bregenz and the National Observatory of Athens. Nor, with galleries in Paris and London, does she leave the travelling to her staff. A New York Times profile from last year notes that Goodman had crossed the Atlantic four times in three weeks for art fairs and artist visits. And it’s not just Europe to which the New York gallerist pays close attention: a longtime supporter of African artists, she represents David Goldblatt, William Kentridge and Julie Mehretu too.
