Founded in 2001 by independent curator Edward Winkleman and artist Joshua Stern, the gallery was launched as Plus Ultra Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Our inaugural exhibition, a group show about sleaze culture and a direct critique of the ongoing Disneyfication of New York City, received a rave review in The New York Times. Subsequent gallery exhibitions have been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, The New Yorker, Time Out New York, Art on Paper and many other art publications.
Moving into Chelsea in March 2006, the gallery name was changed when Murat Orozobekov joined Edward Winkleman as Co-Owner. We have participated in art fairs such as The Armory Show, SEVEN, Pulse, ARCO, Art Chicago, NADA, INDEPENDENT, and Moving Image. Gallery artists have exhibited in some of the world’s most important venues and biennials, including the Venice Biennale, the Vienna Kunsthalle, The Art Institute in Chicago, the Getty Center in Los Angeles, the Singapore Biennale, the Sharjah Biennial, and the Whitney Biennial.
