Skarstedt was founded in 1994 by Per Skarstedt to mount historical exhibitions by Contemporary European and American artists. Skarstedt’s 79th Street location opened in New York in 2008, establishing the gallery’s program, focused on concepts such as representation, authorship, identity, and sexual politics across a wide-range of media. Skarstedt’s unique relationship with artists allows it to present museum-quality exhibitions both on the primary and secondary markets, creating a dialogue between the generations.
Skarstedt has a second New York gallery at 19 E 64th Street and one in London at 8 Bennet Street.
The gallery works with the following artists and artists’ estates: John Baldessari, Georg Baselitz, Alighiero Boetti, John Chamberlain, George Condo, Willem de Kooning, Carroll Dunham, Eric Fischl, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Lucio Fontana, Günther Förg, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, KAWS, Mike Kelley, Yves Klein, Barbara Kruger, Robert Mapplethorpe, Juan Muñoz, Albert Oehlen, Sigmar Polke, Richard Prince, David Salle, Thomas Schütte, Cindy Sherman, Rosemarie Trockel, Günther Uecker, Andy Warhol, Rebecca Warren, Franz West, Sue Williams, Christopher Wool, and The Estate Martin Kippenberger in collaboration with Galerie Gisela Capitain Cologne.
