Petzel Gallery, founded in 1994, first opened on Wooster Street in Soho of New York City. In 2000, the gallery moved to W 22nd Street in Chelsea and in 2006 expanded to include a separate space next door dedicated to smaller exhibitions, artists’ projects, and performances. In fall 2008, Petzel opened Capitain Petzel in Berlin, a joint gallery with Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne. Located in the Mitte section, it presents exhibitions by established international artists in both gallery programs and exclusive to Capitain Petzel. In 2012, Petzel expanded into a new larger location at W 18th Street and in spring of 2015, Petzel opened a second townhouse space on E 67th Street. Used to curate historical exhibitions by artists within the Petzel program, as well as focus on the secondary market and various curatorial projects, a further expansion doubling the gallery’s exhibition space opened February 2020. The move to the new, larger 18th Street location and expansion uptown continue Petzel Gallery’s commitment to develop its program upon the scope, diversity, and ambitions of the artists that it represents.

Petzel Gallery has continued to develop its program around a group of contemporary artists who are renowned internationally: Yael Bartana, Walead Beshty, Cosima von Bonin, Troy Brauntuch, Simon Denny, Keith Edmier, Thomas Eggerer, Derek Fordjour, Wade Guyton, Robert Heinecken, Stefanie Heinze, Georg Herold, Charline von Heyl, Dana Hoey, Christian Jankowski, Asger Jorn, Sean Landers, Rezi van Lankveld, Maria Lassnig, Allan McCollum, Adam McEwen, Rodney McMillian, Sarah Morris, Jorge Pardo, Joyce Pensato, Seth Price, Stephen Prina, Jonathan Pylypchuk, Willem de Rooij, Pieter Schoolwerth, Dana Schutz, Dirk Skreber, John Stezaker, Hiroki Tsukuda, Nicola Tyson, Corinne Wasmuht, and Heimo Zobernig. Each artist has exhibited widely in both museums and galleries throughout the world and are regularly included in international exhibitions such as Documenta, the Whitney Biennial, The Carnegie International, and the São Paulo Biennial. Numerous publications are available on all the gallery artists.
