Sean Kelly Gallery Names Four New Partners

Sean Kelly gallery announced today that four senior members of its management team—Janine Cirincione, Lauren Kelly, Thomas Kelly, and Cecile Panzieri—have been made partners. Panzieri, who has served as a director at the gallery for tweny years, has been named senior partner. Prior to joining the company, Panzieri worked as associate director at Galerie Lelong in New York for nine years, from 1990 to 1999. 

“I feel fortunate to do what I love, and be recognized for my role in furthering the gallery’s vision,” Panzieri said in a statement. “I look forward to the future, working with integrity and passion alongside the best team of colleagues one could have.” 

Lauren and Thomas Kelly, the dealer’s children, joined the gallery in 2006 and 2012, respectively. Cirincione, the curator, artist, and former partner at Tilton Gallery on the Upper East Side, began working at the gallery eight years ago. Commenting on the appointments, Sean Kelly said: “Each of them have made invaluable individual contributions over the years and continue to do so in the dynamic, evolving, and fast-growing culture of the gallery.”  He added: “Cecile joined the gallery in 1999, without her hard work, support and commitment the gallery would not be what it is today.”

Founded in 1991 and operated privately in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan until 1995, the gallery is now located in a twenty-two-thousand-square-foot space at 475 Tenth Avenue. Later this month, Sean Kelly will open a new project space in Taipei. The event will coincide with the launch of the inaugural Taipei Dangdai fair, taking place at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center from January 18 to January 20. Gladys Lin will head the new venue.
