NEW YORK, NY.- Mnuchin Gallery announces that partner Sukanya Rajaratnam will depart the gallery after 15 years of working closely with founder Robert Mnuchin.

Ms. Rajaratnam joined the gallery, then L&M Arts, in 2008. In 2013, she was named a partner and, in coordination with Mnuchin, helped the renamed Mnuchin Gallery maintain their collective vision for museum­-quality exhibitions and rigorous scholarship. Over the next decade, in concert with partner Michael McGinnis, who joined in 2016, they strengthened Mnuchin Gallery's reputation as one of the world's most respected galleries.

Rajaratnam is responsible for some of Mnuchin Gallery's significant exhibitions and for expanding the gallery's scope of programming. She organized the first New York surveys in decades of artists including Sam Gilliam, Ed Clark, Alma Thomas, Mary Lovelace O'Neal, Betty Blayton, and, most recently, Lynne Drexler. She also enabled collaborative exhibitions with artists and their galleries, including—amongst others, El Anatsui, Simon Hantai, Sean Scully, Cindy Sherman and perhaps most importantly David Hammons, whose five-decade survey was the first of its kind, organized with the contribution of the artist.

"Sukanya has been an important contributor to the gallery over the years, an effective voice in exposing the gallery to new artists and a great partner to Mike and myself. We wish her much success in her future endeavors," said Mr. Mnuchin.

"Working alongside Bob has been the honor of my professional career. I am so proud of what we achieved—and grateful for the fun that we had doing it," said Ms. Rajaratnam.

Ms. Rajaratnam's departure will take effect as of Tuesday, January 31. Friends of the gallery are welcome to come by anytime to wish her well.
