Throughout the past two decades, Tanya Bonakdar Gallery has developed a leading contemporary program that now represents more than thirty distinguished artists worldwide. Committed to presenting work across all media including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, and video, the gallery has maintained a rigorous exhibition schedule that features more than ten rotating exhibitions by its artists each year.

Founded in 1994, Tanya Bonakdar Gallery opened at 130 Prince Street in New York City's Soho neighborhood, where it remained until relocating to 521 West 21st Street in Chelsea in 1998. Following a major renovation in the spring of 2006, the gallery doubled in size by acquiring 5,000 square feet along the ground floor of its existing location, expanding its exhibition capabilities as well as its programming. 

Since its early years, the gallery has launched and fostered the careers of a key group of international artists that include Martin Boyce, Sandra Cinto, Mat Collishaw, Olafur Eliasson, Teresa Hubbard/Alexander Birchler, Carla Klein, Ernesto Neto, Rivane Neuenschwander, Susan Philipsz, Analia Saban, Tomas Saraceno, and Thomas Scheibitz, providing all of them with their first solo exhibitions in New York and, for many, their respective debuts in the United States. With a growing roster that now includes figures like Phil Collins, Mark Dion, Meschac Gaba, Mark Manders, Haim Steinbach, Sarah Sze, and Gillian Wearing, the gallery continues to support the careers and work of its artists in dialogue with audiences and institutions around the world.

The gallery also continues to participate consistently in major international art fairs including Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, Frieze Art Fair London, Frieze Art Fair New York, The Armory Show, and The Art Show, organized by the Art Dealers Association of America. In 2011, we exhibited at the Hong Kong International Art Fair and in 2012, at ArtRio International Art Fair of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
