MA Curatorial Practice, 2007
After graduating, Jessica Silverman founded the San Francisco-based Jessica Silverman Gallery, which has a strong concept-driven roster that embraces both rigorously abstract and hyper-figurative work.
The gallery has become known for discovering emergent artists in California and bringing them to an international audience as well as introducing foreign artists to the San Francisco Bay Area.
The gallery, which has recently relocated to a 3,000 square foot space in downtown San Francisco, also has participated in a number of international art fairs, including Frieze (London), FIAC, NADA (Miami Beach, New York, and Cologne), and Dallas Contemporary.
The gallery’s shows are regularly reviewed in international publications such as Frieze, Artforum, Flash Art, and Modern Painters.
She sits on the San Francisco Arts Commission and is committed to bringing art to a broader audience.
