Founded by Tarrah von Lintel in 1993, Von Lintel Gallery initially opened its doors in Munich, and subsequently moved to New York City in 1999, before establishing its current home in Los Angeles in 2014. To put this time into perspective, during its 30 years Von Lintel Gallery has placed over 180 works in the permanent collections of major museums worldwide, displayed booths in over 80 art fairs internationally, exhibited more than 250 shows within its own gallery, and used over 3,500 red dots.
Gems from the Past 30 Years is an ode to the gallery’s journey and will showcase a stunning array of paintings, photography, and unique works on paper. These diverse works exemplify Von Lintel Gallery’s core mission—to quietly push the boundaries of medium and materiality, while upholding an enduring aesthetic tradition. The group exhibition will feature works by artists who have been integral to the gallery’s history, alongside those newly welcomed into the gallery’s roster. The Gems from the Past 30 Years exhibition not only celebrates Von Lintel Gallery’s rich history, but also signifies a continued commitment to fostering artistic excellence and innovation in the years ahead.
Works by Von Lintel artists have been acquired by many notable museums over the past three decades. These institutions, among others, include The Getty Museum, the High Museum, The International Center of Photography, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary, London’s National Gallery of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and The Whitney Museum of American Art.
