The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) has announced the addition of 16 new members from across the country, one of the largest new member classes in the Association’s history: Andrea Crane Fine Art (New York), DOCUMENT (Chicago), Andrew Edlin Gallery (New York), Jenkins Johnson Gallery (San Francisco, Brooklyn), Karma (New York), kurimanzutto (New York), Lisson Gallery (New York), Robert Mann Gallery (New York), Jonathan Novak Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), PATRON (Chicago), Nara Roesler (New York), Sprüth Magers (Los Angeles), Cristin Tierney Gallery (New York), TOTAH (New York), Various Small Fires (Los Angeles), and Shoshana Wayne Gallery (Los Angeles). They join over 170 members, from more than 30 cities across the U.S., in the nation’s leading nonprofit organization of fine art dealers, which is dedicated to supporting galleries’ cultural and economic contributions, and serves as a resource on the most important trends and issues in the field.
Membership in the Association signifies an established standing within the gallery community and expresses a commitment to upholding the highest standards of connoisseurship and scholarship.
The 16 new members of the Association represent a spectrum of specializations, genres, mediums, perspectives, and programmatic approaches. To ensure that new members share the ADAA’s commitment to industry best practices and advancing the industry, candidates participate in a year-long application process, beginning with a nomination by an existing ADAA member. The entire membership votes to accept new candidates, who must demonstrate a record of accomplishment and major contributions to the art community, through activities such as organizing exhibitions, producing scholarly publications, and actively working with museums. They must additionally have been in business for at least five years.
“Our incredibly wide-ranging new membership class speaks to the vitality and breadth of perspectives and expertise defining the American gallery landscape today. From coast to coast, and with footprints around the globe, these 16 members have made demonstrated contributions to our industry—empowering artistic practice, fostering scholarship, and innovating with their business models. In welcoming the class of 2021, the ADAA continues to strengthen its representation of the leading American galleries and deepens the impact of our advocacy for our industry as a whole,” said Anthony Meier, ADAA President.
“I’m honored to mark my first year heading the ADAA Membership Committee with this tremendous expansion of our national membership,” said Robert Grosman, ADAA Membership Committee Chair. “The scope of their combined experiences and perspectives add to the dynamic network of leading gallerists and dealers shaping the ADAA’s activities and impact.”
