Marian Goodman Gallery will close its London venue by the end of the year and implement a different exhibition model in the city, the gallery announced today.
Named Marian Goodman Projects, the new initiative will stage events throughout London in settings intended to complement artists’ individual practices. The enterprise will be helmed by Philipp Kaiser, the gallery’s chief executive director of artists and programs, with its first project opening next autumn. After expanding from her flagship New York location to Paris in 1995, Goodman opened the London outpost—a David Adjaye–renovated former warehouse on Soho’s Golden Square—in 2014.
“The art world has undergone dramatic changes in recent years, and the current health crisis and Brexit have introduced even more uncertainty into the market, especially for galleries operating in London,” said Goodman, who founded her gallery in 1977 and has since risen to become one of the industry’s most influential dealers.
