Founded in 2001 by independent curator Edward Winkleman and artist Joshua Stern, the gallery was launched as Plus Ultra Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Our inaugural exhibition, a group show about sleaze culture and a direct critique of the ongoing Disneyfication of New York City, received a rave review in The New York Times. Subsequent gallery exhibitions have been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, The New Yorker, Time Out New York, Art on Paper and many other art publications.
Moving into Chelsea in March 2006, the gallery name was changed to reflect a change in ownership. We have participated in art fairs such as ARCO, Art Chicago, Pulse, Year 06, Aqua, and NADA, and gallery artists have exhibited in some of the world’s most important venues, including the Venice Biennale, the Vienna Kunsthalle, The Art Institute in Chicago, the Getty Center in Los Angeles, the Singapore Biennale, and the Sharjah Biennial.
