NEW YORK, NY.- Cristin Tierney Gallery has announced today the new partnership of gallery founder Cristin Tierney and Denis Gardarin, most recently of White Cube Gallery in London. Under the new partnership, the gallery will be renamed Tierney Gardarin Gallery, effective immediately. It will remain in the Chelsea art district of New York City at 546 West 29th Street.

Established in 2010 by Cristin Tierney, the Cristin Tierney Gallery was founded with a commitment to artist development, collection advisory services, and arts education. Under the new partnership, Tierney Gardarin Gallery will focus on creating an environment that moves beyond the white box model, exploring critical theory and art historical themes. Through the partnership, and with the collaboration of guest curators, Tierney Gardarin Gallery aims to present museum quality exhibitions by working with mid-career artists and under-recognized contemporary art movements.

The gallery's roster is comprised of a diverse range of emerging and mid-career artists, including but not limited to, Peter Campus, Joe Fig, Malia Jensen, Alois Kronschlaeger, Marman and Borins, Jean Shin, and Jorge Tacla. The additions of the estate of Geraldo de Barros and the artist Ryan Mosley to the gallery's roster exemplifies the increasingly international direction of the new venture. Mosley will have his first solo New York exhibition at the gallery opening on June 27, 2013.

"Denis and I formed this partnership because we envision a gallery that connects artists and art history through thoughtful, carefully curated exhibitions," says Cristin Tierney. "Together, we hope to broaden the gallery's international scope and focus on presenting exhibitions that take risks. A gallery should be an incubator for innovative ideas, not merely an economic mechanism."

The gallery marks its first exhibition under the new partnership with Concrete Remains: Postwar and Contemporary Art from Brazil, a group exhibition curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, on view from May 9 through June 22, 2013. Concrete Remains examines different moments of Brazilian art of the 20th and 21st centuries, specifically looking at the lasting legacy of Concrete art and Neoconcretism. Artworks by significant figures such as Lygia Clark, Amilcar de Castro, Hélio Oiticica, and Geraldo de Barros will be juxtaposed with pieces by contemporary Brazilian artists including Iran do Espirito Santo, Fernanda Gomes, and Jac Leirner. The exhibition will demonstrate both formal and conceptual affinities between generations, and the growing importance of these artists' work within the context of a global art world.

For the past ten years, Cristin Tierney has been working as an art dealer and advisor for private collectors and institutions within the United States. Through her work at the gallery, Cristin continues to build these collections while also building an international network. An integral part of client development has been arts education, and the gallery offers both casual and intensive seminars on modern and contemporary art throughout the year.

Prior to art advising, Cristin Tierney was a consultant at Christie's auction house. She has taught graduate level seminars on the history of the art market at Christie's Education and undergraduate art history at New York University. Cristin has served on the boards of several non-profit organizations, including the Lower East Side Printshop and the Reynolda House Museum of American Art.

Denis Gardarin has more than 20 years of experience working in major cultural institutions and leading contemporary art galleries representing renowned mid-career artists in the United States and Europe. Prior to his partnership with Cristin Tierney, Gardarin was Associate-Director at White Cube Gallery in London, where he managed sales of gallery artists to major private and public collections. From 2003 to 2011, Gardarin was a director at Sean Kelly Gallery in New York. Previous to this, he worked at Brent Sikkema Gallery in New York, NY, Couturier Gallery in Los Angeles, CA, and the Department of Photography at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) in Los Angeles.
