Owner of The Andrea Rosen Gallery

Andrea Rosen, BA’84 (Visual Arts) owns The Andrea Rosen Gallery on West 24th Street in New York City.

When she isn’t travelling the world to visit artists’ studios or attend art fairs like Art Basel Miami, Art Basel Switzerland or the Biennale in Venice, Italy, the striking bleached-blonde is in the Big Apple, working with a 20-plus staff who help keep her gallery on the leading edge of the contemporary art scene. Described as the “tough, platinum princess of the Chelsea gallery scene,” she represents upwards of 25 of the world’s best contemporary artists including England’s Nigel Cooke and premier Canadian artist David Altmejd. After graduating from Western, Rosen moved New York to work in a variety of gallery jobs, even starting, but not completing, a masters in East Asian studies at Columbia University. A job as director at the Daniel Newburg Gallery saw her leave Columbia, and, after a year, open her own Soho gallery in 1990.

The Kingston, Ont.-born and raised Rosen established her star path with a Felix Gonzalez-Torres exhibition that set her apart as discerning and perceptive. Today, she represents the estate of the legendary conceptual artist who died of AIDS in 1996, and manages his foundation as well.
