Access will be available through DavidKordanskyGallery.com, and sales inquiries can be made directly through the website’s portal.

Jones, Tala Madani, Calvin Marcus, Chris Martin, Ivan Morley, Shahryar Nashat, Ruby Neri, Anthony Pearson, Torbjørn Rødland, Ricky Swallow, Tom of Finland, Lesley Vance, Michael Williams, and Jonas Wood.

As a communal effort to support attempts to grapple with the climate crisis, Artists for Climate Action underscores the important role played by art and artists in the shifting of consciousness required to effect change on a large scale.
David Kordansky Gallery’s new Online Viewing Room will provide access to viewers and collectors around the globe and will host a full program of curated exhibitions, artist projects, and other shows.
