Jessica Silverman

1 September 2015

San Francisco may not be as well known as New York or London as an art-world capital, but it would be foolish to ignore its vibrant, if comparatively small gallery sector. Since founding her eponymous gallery in 2008, Jessica Silverman has become one of the city’s leading dealer-curators, attracting an impressive degree of international attention with her select but diverse stable of artists. Silverman prides herself on the gallery’s open-minded, concept-driven programme – it’s as likely to show contemporary figurative as abstract work. As she has put it, good collecting means ‘buying with your eyes, not your ears’.
