Jessica Silverman is a contemporary art gallery with an international reputation for curating compelling exhibitions, building artists’ careers, and collaborating with collectors who are keen on positive provenance. Our mission is to support artists whose relevance to contemporary culture is such that museums want to understand and embrace their work.
Silverman founded the gallery in 2008, after completing a BFA in Studio Art at Otis College in Los Angeles and an MA in Curatorial Practice at the California College of the Arts, San Francisco. Introduced to art by her late grandfather, Gilbert Silverman who was the leading collector of Fluxus in America and whose collection now resides principally in MoMA NY, she developed a nose for meaningful concepts and an eye for formal innovation at an early age.
The gallery is located in a newly renovated space at 621 Grant Avenue (corner of California) in San Francisco’s Chinatown. It has participated in many selective art fairs, such as Art Basel Miami Beach and Switzerland, FIAC Paris, New York’s ADAA Art Show and San Francisco’s Fog Design+Art. Silverman is on the Selection Committee of Expo Chicago and a member of the Art Dealers Association of America.
Works by the gallery’s artists have been acquired by museums all over the world including Tate (London), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Reina Sofia (Madrid), MoMA (New York), MCA Chicago, Art Institute of Chicago, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, not to mention SFMOMA, Berkeley Art Museum, and the De Young Museum.
For nine years, Silverman sat on the San Francisco Arts Commission where she oversaw the acquisition and commission of art works for sites like SFO Airport. Since then, she has advised property developers, such as the Mark Company, Troon Pacific and Related Companies.
