In 2003, Margaret Liu Clinton was selected as a Helena Rubinstein Critical Studies Fellow at the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program where she went on to serve as the Program’s assistant for the next two years. She continued to work part-time for the Whitney Program while beginning her Ph.D. at the City University of New York.
During a brief leave of absence from her studies in 2007, Margaret went to work for the (then) newly opened Miguel Abreu Gallery. Becoming completely immersed in a context that fostered critical dialogue alongside commercial success, she served as the gallery's director for the next three years. Clinton was appointed director of Alexander Gray Associates and then director of Leo Koenig Inc. before publicly partnering with Leo Koenig to form Koenig & Clinton in 2013.
In this new formation, the original Leo Koenig Inc. platform that strongly supported artists working in painting and sculpture expanded its reach to include the video, photography, installation, dance, and performance.
Having recently relocated from Chelsea to the artist-centered neighborhood of Bushwick, Koenig & Clinton remains focused on actively building a cross-generational program that reflects the rich diversity of cultural and aesthetic approaches that are historically characteristic of New York City.
