About Max Teicher
Teicher has been with Gagosian since 2008, where he's had the opportunity to witness the expansive growth of the gallery to what it is today - an international contemporary art gallery that has moved outward from New York City to encompass sixteen gallery spaces worldwide. He has worked with diverse collections - domestic and international - thanks to the artists the gallery has exhibited and the exhibitions that have taken place at the gallery.
Larry Gagosian opened his first gallery in Los Angeles in 1980, specializing in modern and contemporary art. Five years later, he expanded his activities to New York, inaugurating his first Chelsea gallery with an exhibition of works from the Pop art collection of Emily and Burton Tremaine. In thirty years Gagosian has evolved into a global network with spaces in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Paris, Rome, Athens, Geneva, and Hong Kong, designed by world-renowned architects including Caruso St John, Richard Gluckman, Richard Meier, Jean Nouvel, Selldorf Architects, and wHY Architecture.
Gagosian’s vibrant contemporary program features the work of leading international artists alongside unparalleled historical exhibitions are prepared and presented on the work of legendary and art historically relevant artists.
