New York’s Kasmin gallery has brought on Tianyue Jiang as its new director. Jiang, who will start at the gallery this month, comes to Kasmin following a four-year stint at Christie’s, where she served as vice president and specialist in the auction house’s Asian 20th-century and contemporary art department. At Kasmin, she will be charged with strategic development for the gallery in Asia.
A release announcing Jiang’s hire reads, in part, “It is wonderful to welcome someone of Tianyue’s immense experience to the gallery to lead our ambitions both in Asia and at home here in New York. Her specialized knowledge of the region will be of tremendous importance as we continue to develop our client base and introduce more Asian artists to the gallery program.”
In a statement, Jiang said, “I have always admired Paul Kasmin’s excellent artists and estates representation and rigorous curatorial approach. I am excited to join the team and to bring new artist names to the roster, especially those pertaining to Asia.”
