The COVID-19 outbreak has imposed restrictions in movement. As part of an ongoing initiative, photographers of Magnum Photo are sharing information and new work made in these strange and difficult times.
Twenty-five years ago, the gallery opened in a relatively small space at 43 Greene Street in SoHo in New York, with the intention to show challenging art without compromise. It’s been an extraordinary quarter of a century, with over 300 exhibitions behind us – from Greene Street to Chelsea in New York, then onwards to London, the Upper East Side, Hong Kong, and soon another Chelsea expansion – and an incredible roster of artists, outstanding staff, and community of collectors, curators, and supporters. I am proud that the ethos and spirit of commitment to the artists and their art that guided the gallery from the beginning remains true today and as we look ahead. This anniversary presents an opportunity to look back at – as well as behind the scenes of – a few of the highlights that have made these decades so memorable.
