Rhona Hoffman Gallery

Rhona Hoffman Gallery, founded originally as Young Hoffman Gallery in 1976,  specializes in international contemporary art in all medias, and art that is conceptually,  formally, or socio-politically based. From its inception, the gallery has launched  emerging artists’ careers. In the seventies, Young Hoffman Gallery was one of the first  galleries to offer exhibitions to women artists including Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger,  Jenny Holzer, and Sylvia Plimack Mangold.  

Since 1983, when Rhona Hoffman and Donald Young announced the establishment of  separate galleries, Rhona Hoffman Gallery has continued to show young and emerging  artists alongside established ones. Among the artists the gallery has exhibited and/or  continues to exhibit are Vito Acconci, Spencer Finch, Luis Gispert, Leon Golub, Robert  Heinecken, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Sol LeWitt, Gordon Matta-Clark, Robert  Ryman, Fred Sandback, Lorna Simpson, Nancy Spero, Richard Tuttle, Brian Ulrich,  Carrie Mae Weems, and Kehinde Wiley.  

The gallery is very active in the Chicago arts community and maintains strong  relationships with museums, helping to place important works in their collections and  within their programs. Additionally, the gallery gives exposure to artists currently living  in Chicago such as, Julia Fish, Chris Garofalo, Judy Ledgerwood, John Preus, Michael  Rakowitz, Richard Rezac, David Schutter, Amanda Williams, and Anne Wilson.

We will be participating at Art Basel Miami Beach and EXPO Chicago.
