Rosenfeld Gallery was founded in New York City in 1970 by Michelle Rosenfeld. During the graffiti movement in the late 70’s early 80’s Rosenfeld Gallery’s main focus was exhibiting works from Jean-Michel Basquiat, Futura 2000, Keith Haring, Rammellzee, and Kenny Scharf. In the late 80’s early 90’s the gallery shifted its focus to incorporate Impressionism, Modern Masters, Abstract Expressionism and the Color Field School. In 2005, Jason Rosenfeld shifted the Gallery’s focus towards Contemporary Masters and began offering Art Advisory services to prospective clients. Today Rosenfeld Gallery assists every client in building collections that represent their aesthetic while ensuring there is a strong secondary market value and typicality with each work of art.
What made you open a gallery in Miami?
We felt there was a need for a secondary market gallery steeped in tradition with a brand name. Our South Florida clients were yearning for an Art Gallery that exhibited artists with established track records at Auction without having to travel to New York or Europe. The sophistication of the Miami art collectors and the lack of secondary market Art Gallery’s in Miami drove us to the Miami Design District. The Miami Design District was a natural fit for our new gallery. The aesthetic is steeped in art, architecture, and the finest luxury brands.
Please describe your upcoming special exhibit including the artist (s) that will be showcased.
Our Winter show, FIGURATIVE ∙ STILL-LIFE ∙ OBJECTIVITY, will open to the public on December 1, 2020 through March 31, 2020. The show will feature works by Banksy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Javier Calleja, George Condo, Jean Dubuffet, Keith Haring, KAWS, Joan Miró, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Kenny Scharf, and Tom Wesselmann.
FIGURATIVE ∙ STILL-LIFE ∙ OBJECTIVITY demonstrates how modern and contemporary artists use different mediums to express creativity and expression. Tom Wesselmann and Keith Haring demonstrate the use of steel and color, while Kenny Scharf utilized a found object, for example, an old lamp, with canvas and color. KAWS and Takashi Murakami presents vibrant color and hardline to evoke emotion. While Javier Calleja, George Condo, Jean Dubuffet, and Jean-Michel Basquiat create figurative child-like people in a more traditional medium. We’re excited to exhibit a wide range of established artists tying in the past to the present while showcasing different mediums.
What safety measures are being taken to protect collectors when they visit?
We require all visitors to wear a mask inside the gallery, we’ll have hand sanitizer available and only eight people will be allowed in the gallery at one time.
Rosenfeld Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 am to 8:00 pm and Sunday 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.
