Jack Shainman Gallery
Jack Shainman Gallery513 West 20th Street, New York, NY, USA
Jack Shainman Gallery transplanted to New York from Washington, D.C. in 1984, at the apex of the ’80s East Village gallery scene before moving to SoHo and finally, finding its permanent home in Chelsea. From inception, the Gallery, founded by Jack Shainman and Claude Simard, has championed artists from diverse multicultural backgrounds who engage in the social and cultural issues of their time—among them, Nick Cave, Hayv Kahraman, Meleko Mokgosi, Richard Mosse, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Hank Willis Thomas, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
In 2013, the Gallery opened two additional exhibition spaces, one in Chelsea at 524 West 24th Street, and another in a converted 30,000 square foot building in Kinderhook, NY, known as The School.
