Founded by Gregory Linn and Clayton Press, LINN | PRESS has been active participants in the contemporary art market as collectors, dealers, curators, and advisors since 1980. As collectors, they were early identifiers of such “contemporary masters” as Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, Allan McCollum, Louis Lawler, and Sherrie Levine. They have been active supporters of the careers of Angela Bulloch, Peter Doig, Stan Douglas, Zoe Leonard, John McCracken, Jason Rhoades, Kay Rosen, Dieter Roth, Diana Thater, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Luc Tuymans, Dan Walsh, Franz West, T.J. Wilcox, and Christopher Williams.
More recently, LINN | PRESS has advocated a new generation of North American and European talent, including Walead Beshty, Matthew Brannon, Wade Guyton, Adam Henry, Charline von Heyl, Nathan Hylden, Jacob Kassay, Jutta Koether, Seth Price, Josephine Pryde, Michael Rey, Sterling Ruby, Borna Sammak, Valerie Snobeck, and Kelley Walker.
As our practice has grown and as the art market has changed, especially following the economic reset of 2008, our clients have sharpened their interests on superior quality and value. We still thrill at identifying and developing the careers of emerging and mid-career talent. Yet, there is increased demand for exceptional works of contemporary art that are likely to retain or appreciate in value.
LINN | PRESS has worked with clients in several major US cities and their suburbs, including New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Miami. Since 2006, we have actively worked with additional clients in Cologne, London, Paris, Moscow, Munich, and Vienna.
