Founded by Paul Kasmin in SoHo in 1989, Kasmin cultivates a rigorous exhibition program that places historic figures of Post-War art in dialogue with the evolving practice of established and emerging artists working today. For nearly 30 years, the gallery has nurtured the careers of eminent modern and contemporary artists including Tina Barney, Walton Ford, James Nares, Ivan Navarro, Roxy Paine, Elliott Puckette, Mark Ryden, Bosco Sodi, and Bernar Venet, among many others, and put on the first-ever U.S. gallery shows of artists including Les Lalanne. Kasmin was among the first galleries to move to Chelsea in 2000 and continues to expand its program to include more artists and estates, now encompassing three gallery spaces anchored in the heart of the Chelsea Arts District at 10th Avenue and 27th Street.

In addition to supporting contemporary artists, Kasmin leads the field in advocating for the legacy of artist estates, currently representing some of the most influential artists of the 20th century, including Constantin Brancusi, William N. Copley, Stuart Davis, Max Ernst, Barry Flanagan, Jane Freilicher, Simon Hantaï, Robert Indiana, Lee Krasner, and Robert Motherwell. The gallery also specializes in the presentation of large-scale sculpture and engages in public art projects across New York and around the world, with recent examples including: Bosco Sodi’s Muro in Washington Square Park, New York (2017), Les Lalanne’s Sheep Station in Chelsea, New York (2013), and Mark Ryden’s Dodecahedron at PMQ Gardens in Hong Kong (2018). Complementing the gallery’s robust exhibitions program, Kasmin is also dedicated to furthering academic research on its artists and develops scholarly publications that shed new light on their diverse practices. The gallery has published comprehensive catalogs including William N. Copley X-Rated, Simon Hantaï’s Blancs, Lee Krasner’s Umber PaintingsAlexander the Great: The Iolas Gallery 1955-1987, Impasse Ronsin, and the first English translation of a monograph-scale book of Max Ernst’s sculpture. In September of  2018, Brancusi & Duchamp: The Art of Dialogue opened to the public, looking at the creative and personal relationship between the two artists. Dedicated to cultivating collectors and working with artists from around the world, Kasmin participates in a range of international art fairs across Europe, the Americas, and Asia.

Marking a new chapter of curatorial ambition for the gallery, Kasmin expanded the gallery’s footprint in Chelsea with the opening of its fourth space in October 2018. The new, purpose-built gallery designed by studioMDA features a rooftop sculpture garden overlooking The High Line, representing a first-of-its-kind model for publicly sited commercial sculpture. Rejecting the dichotomy that pits brick-and-mortar against new methods of programming, the gallery’s new rooftop sculpture garden places Kasmin’s roster of artists and exhibitions in conversation with one of the most innovative platforms for art developed in recent years, reimagining how a commercial gallery can engage with art and the public.

Paul Kasmin continues to helm the gallery into its 30th anniversary year, supported by Managing Director Nick Olney and Directors Edith Dicconson, Eric Gleason, Laura Lester, and Mariska Nietzman. Kasmin gallery spaces are located at 509 West 27th Street, 293 Tenth Avenue, and 297 Tenth Avenue, and the Kasmin Sculpture Garden is viewable from The High Line at 27th Street with access on 28th Street.

Painters of the East End

July 11, 2019 - August 16, 2019
Kasmin is pleased to announce Painters of the East End, on view at 297 Tenth Avenue between July 11 – August 16, 2019. The exhibition explores the commonalities and distinctions of the work produced amongst the coterie culture of Long Island’s South Fork during the mid-twentieth century, including Mary Abbott, Nell Blaine, Perle Fine, Helen Frankenthaler, Jane Freilicher, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Charlotte Park, Betty Parsons, and Jane Wilson. Artists have historically converged on Long Island seeking inspiration from the landscape and an escape from their confined urban studios, while still retaining access to the energy of New York City. With the mass influx of the European avant-garde following the onset of World War II and the subsequent establishment of the New York School, a thriving and collaborative artist-based community was born in the East End. The Hamptons of the New York School was untamed, inexpensive, and a bastion of bohemian living. The opportunities provided by the area’s open spaces were developmental for the painters who set up there not only because of their practical advantages—larger studios, relative quiet—but for novel subject-matter that allowed for contemplations of the horizon, rural landscapes, and bodies of water, nodding to the lineage of the Romantic sublime. Perhaps most crucial for these artists was their shared inspirations which led to a new model of community, differing in both structure and character from the frenetic energy of lower Manhattan. Such a social scene was integral to both the personal and artistic lives of the artists represented in the exhibition. Helen A. Harrison, Director at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton, says of the period: “The painters who gravitated to Long Island's South Fork in the mid-twentieth century were a far more varied group than the earlier art colonists, who came primarily for the picturesque scenery. They ran the gamut from landscape painters to Surrealists, Abstract Expressionists, and Pop artists, so it's clear that many were motivated by factors other than subject matter. Perhaps even more important than the beautiful surroundings and the ease of access from New York City was the magnetism of association, as artists attracted one another to form a vibrant creative community that continues to thrive today.” The exhibition includes: Mary Abbott (b. 1921), Nell Blaine (1922 – 1996), Perle Fine (1905 – 1988), Helen Frankenthaler (1928 – 2011), Jane Freilicher (1924 – 2014), Elaine de Kooning (1918 – 1989), Lee Krasner (1908 – 1984), Joan Mitchell (1925 – 1992), Charlotte Park (1918 – 2010), Betty Parsons (1900 –1982), and Jane Wilson (1924 – 2015).
