Sean Kelly

Founded by British-born Sean Kelly in 1991

Sean Kelly Gallery was founded in 1991 but it operated privately until 1995 when it opened its doors on Mercer Street. In 2001, Sean Kelly moved into a converted 7,000 square-foot industrial space on 29th Street in the Chelsea gallery district.  In 2012, the gallery also opened a new 22,000 square foot space in an historic 1914 building.

Many of the artists represented by Sean Kelly have participated at the Venice Biennale representing their countries: Joseph Kosuth at the Hungarian Pavilion in 1993, Julião Sarmento at the Portuguese Pavilion in 1997 and Marina Abramovic who won the Golden Lion Award for Sculpture in 1997.
