For more than 25 years Barbara Davis Gallery has brought groundbreaking contemporary art to Houston. Driven by her intuitive sensibilities and perennially fresh vision, Barbara Davis has championed a generation of significant contemporary artists. In the process she has challenged a generation of art collectors, both seasoned and aspiring, to see the beauty and value in their work. She has launched the careers of international artists such as Julie Mehretu, Shahziah Sikander, and Mie Olise, having given Julie Mehretu her first gallery exhibition and Danish painter Mie Olise her first U.S. exhibition. She has also brought to Houston the influential names of Joseph Beuys, Kiki Smith, Jonathan Borofsky, and Allan McCollum as well as many others. Barbara Davis Gallery was one of the first Texas galleries to be included in the influential and prestigious Art Basel Miami Beach art fair. The gallery’s exhibitions have been reviewed in international publications such as ArtForum, Art in America, Art News, Flash Art International, and the New York Times. Her commitment to exhibiting innovative contemporary art has established her as one of the most progressive and discerning galleries.
