For half a century, Marian Goodman has shown deep commitment to fostering the careers of some of the most significant and respected artists of our times, with a distinctive vision — international in scope, thoughtful, and always intimately supportive of the creative process. In 1965, Goodman founded Multiples, which published prints, multiples and books by leading American and European artists, including John Baldessari, Marcel Broodthaers, Roy Lichtenstein, and Gerhard Richter. In 1977, she opened Marian Goodman Gallery with an exhibition of Broodthaers, the Belgian artist’s first in the U.S. Since then, the gallery has led the way in introducing international artists to American audiences, while also opening exhibition spaces in Paris in 1997, and most recently in London in 2014. She is the recipient of ICI’s 2016 Leo Award.
