Cheim & Read
Cheim & Read was founded in 1997 by John Cheim and Howard Read. The gallery actively represents an international group of leading contemporary artists and estates, embracing diverse artistic practices, from painting and sculpture to photography and video. Artists represented have exhibited extensively in museums and galleries world-wide, and are regularly included in exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale, Whitney Biennial, Carnegie International and Documenta. Established in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, Cheim & Read has an airy, 6,000 square foot building with multiple spaces, allowing for intimate or expansive exhibition formats. Cheim & Read is known for critical monographic exhibitions, including comprehensive, museum-quality surveys of work by William Eggleston (“21st Century”), Lynda Benglis (“New Work”), Louise Bourgeois (“Suspension”), Joan Mitchell (“Trees”), Milton Resnick (“The Elephant in the Room”) and Al Held (“The Alphabet Paintings”). The gallery is also acclaimed for organizing historically-significant group exhibitions, including “The New Landscape/The New Still Life,” an in-depth examination of Chaim Soutine’s influence on Modern art; “The Female Gaze: Women Look at Women,” a show of women artists’ depictions of the female form; and “I Am As You Will Be,” a study of the skeleton and mortality in artistic representation.
