DOCUMENT welcomes Sibylle Friche as Partner

DOCUMENT is excited to announce the appointment of Sibylle Friche in her new role as Partner. She joins Gallery Founder and Owner, Aron Gent.

Friche has served as DOCUMENT’s Director from 2015–2022. Since joining the gallery, she has produced over forty solo and group exhibitions, overseen numerous internationally-recognised art fair presentations, and has played a pivotal role in the development of the gallery’s program and expansion. During her tenure, Friche has facilitated institutional acquisitions by The Guggenheim Museum, The Centre Pompidou, and The Carnegie Museum of Art, among others. 

“Sibylle has been instrumental to the success of the gallery,” said Gent. “She has expanded our reach and has formed meaningful relationships with institutions, artists, and collectors across the globe, most notably in Europe.” He continued, “She approaches her work with integrity and rigor and I am eager to see what she brings to this new role.”

“I am proud to continue my work at DOCUMENT in a new capacity, while continuing to support and champion a talented roster of artists,” said Friche. “I admire Aron’s dedication, vision, and contributions to the art world and I am excited to be able to play a role in shaping the future of DOCUMENT.”
