Christopher Grimes Gallery
Founded in 1979, Christopher Grimes Gallery presents a diverse yet rigorous program of contemporary art in a variety of media including painting, photography, installation, performance, sculpture and video. The gallery has been involved in the early development of the careers of artists such as Katharina Grosse, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Ernesto Neto, Fred Tomaselli, and Lisa Yuskavage. The gallery actively works with emerging and established artists such as Antonio Ballester Moreno, Kota Ezawa, Lucia Koch, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Julião Sarmento, and Allan Sekula.
From early on, the gallery has been a pioneer in exhibiting video art and in 2011 organized a group exhibition, Super 8, featuring 40 video artists from 8 international cities. The exhibition traveled to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA; Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany; and the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
