South Africa’s Goodman Gallery expands to New York with an office and viewing room
South Africa’s leading gallery is making its first permanent inroads in the US
Goodman Gallery will open a new location in New York this autumn in a move to establish a more permanent presence for the South African gallery and their roster of artists in the US, as well as gain greater exposure to local media and curators, owner and director Liza Essers says.
The new location on the Upper East Side, opening on 6 September—the week of The Armory Show in New York—adds to the gallery’s existing spaces in Johannesburg, Cape Town and London, where it expanded in 2019. Rather than a gallery space, the New York location will operate as an office and viewing room for “focused presentations” featuring artists from the African continent and the global South, Essers says.
