San Francisco’s Berggruen Gallery to Open New Space in January 2017

Berggruen Gallery has announced that it will open the doors to its new space, located across from the recently expanded San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, on January 13, 2017. The gallery will be housed in a historic three-story building and will dedicate two floors to exhibitions and one floor to projects and events.

“The opening of our new gallery represents the next phase in our role of being a catalyst within the Bay Area and the California arts ecology,” John Berggruen said. “Our gallery will offer artists a larger and more fluid space in which to exhibit their work, enhancing our role in bringing innovative exhibitions and introducing new artists to San Francisco. Being at the center of the arts district and adjacent to SF MoMA will enable us to foster meaningful interplay between the art we and our neighbors present.”

For its inaugural exhibition, Berggruen Gallery will present “The Human Form,” which will explore the representation of the body from the early twentieth century to today, with works by artists such Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Edward Hopper, and Willem de Kooning, as well as contemporary artists including Gerhard Richter, Cecily Brown, George Condo, Kiki Smith, and Kehinde Wiley.
