The Gallery was founded by Eli Klein and operated in SoHo between 2007 and 2013. During these formative years, it established a reputation for introducing fresh, contemporary, and often challenging work by rising Chinese talents to the West.
In 2013, the Gallery relocated to an 8,000 square foot street-level space at 525 West 22nd Street in Chelsea to accommodate increasingly ambitious large-scale projects and the visions of its artists. In the same year, Klein partnered with long time collaborator Shanna Sun to form Klein Sun Gallery.
Today, the Gallery has an international reputation as one of the foremost galleries specializing in Chinese contemporary art and continues to advance the careers of its represented artists. The Gallery's programming encompasses exhibiting, museum collaborations, art fair participation, public art projects, artist residencies, academic publications and social engagement, aiming to promote awareness, recognition and access to Chinese culture. Klein Sun also maintains an office in Beijing.
