Skarstedt was founded in 1994 by Per Skarstedt to mount historical exhibitions by Contemporary European and American artists. Skarstedt’s 79th Street location opened in New York in 2008, establishing the gallery's program, focused on concepts such as representation, authorship, identity, and sexual politics across a wide-range of media. Skarstedt's unique relationship with artists allows it to present museum-quality exhibitions both on the primary and secondary markets, creating a dialogue between the generations.
Located at 8 Bennet Street, Skarstedt’s London gallery is situated in the historic district of St James’s, on the corner of Arlington Street and Bennet Street, both named after Henry Bennet, Earl of Arlington. Known as ‘ministerial street’ in the 17th and 18th centuries, the street was previously home to Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole and his son Horace Walpole, an esteemed collector and connoisseur. Measuring 5,000 square feet, with the main exhibition space at ground floor level, the three interconnected galleries enabling Skarstedt to continue its program, of historically-researched and museum-quality exhibitions.
Skarstedt’s expansion to 64th Street in New York enables even more ambitious programming in the historic 25,000 square foot building designed by renowned architect Horace Trumbauer. Skarstedt continues the townhouse’s legacy, unifying the elegance of 18th-century French design with displays of modern and contemporary art throughout the multiple galleries and viewing rooms. Celebrating the old and the new, Skarstedt looks forward to deepening its commitment to the iconic artists that formed its very identity, while simultaneously pushing into the future and expanding its vision in this storied Manhattan building.
