For over 30 years, Jack Hanley Gallery’s artistic agenda has remained focused on discovering and fostering talented emerging contemporary artists. It was originally established in Austin, Texas, as Trans-Avant Garde Gallery in 1987. In 1990, it moved San Francisco until 1996, when it took a brief two-year hiatus for Hanley to focus on his love of music. The gallery reopened in 1999 in the Mission District of San Francisco, where it nurtured a dialogue between local and international artists. During its ten-year residency at 395 Valencia, Jack Hanley Gallery became synonymous with the Mission District, fostering local artists that came to be known as “The Mission School.” In 2008, Jack Hanley Gallery relocated to New York City, closing both San Francisco and Los Angeles galleries. The gallery moved to its present pre-war building at 327 Broome Street in the heart of Manhattan’s up-and-coming Lower East Side in 2012. Beyond its immediate artistic program, the gallery has regularly organized projects, published numerous artist books and printed limited edition posters.
