Marianne Boesky Gallery announced today that Adrian Turner, Serra Pradhan, and Ricky Manne are now partners at the New York gallery, which has branches in Chelsea and the Upper and Lower East Sides. All three new partners have been directors at the gallery at some point. This is the first time Marianne Boesky has added new partners since the gallery opened, in 1996.

Turner, who was director from 2005 to 2010, is responsible for the largest number of artists on the gallery’s roster. In his time as director, he developed the gallery’s presence abroad, bringing the gallery to fairs like Art Basel Hong Kong and Art Dubai for the first time during his tenure. Turner has been a senior director at the gallery since 2010.

Pradhan, meanwhile, has been a director at the gallery since 2009 and expanded the gallery’s roster to include Italian artists like Pier Paolo Calzolari and Salvatore Scarpitta. In addition to her work at Marianne Boesky, she has been known for being a seminar leader at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art and a member of the Advisory Board of RxArt.

Manne is the newest to the gallery of the three—he has been a director at the gallery since 2012. Last year, he helped bring on Frank Stella in a joint representation deal with Dominique Lévy Gallery.

As of last year, Marianne Boesky Gallery now lays claim to three locations—Boesky East, in the Lower East Side, is its third and newest branch. A release for the announcement notes that “this new collaboration will allow the gallery to realize many ambitious projects.”
