    • With a background in law, non-profit arts administration and collecting, Todd Hosfelt founded his gallery in 1996 in a 2,000 square foot space above the famed artist residency program, Capp Street Project, in San Francisco's SOMA district.  Former San Jose Museum of Art curator and current partner Dianne Dec joined the gallery in 1997.  Over the years, the gallery developed a reputation for transforming industrial buildings in off-the-beaten-path locations into extraordinary exhibition spaces, starting with its relocation in 1999 to a South of Market former warehouse.  In 2006, Hosfelt Gallery opened a second venue in New York City, a few blocks north of Chelsea in Hell's Kitchen, converting a derelict storeroom above an auto-body shop into 7,500 square feet of exquisite gallery space suffused in natural light.


      In 2012 the gallery consolidated its operations with a trailblazing move to its current location, establishing the nucleus of what is now San Francisco's newest and most vibrant arts district, DoReMi.  With 9,000 square feet

    • of sky-lit space in a former door factory, the gallery's integration of distinctive contemporary design with unaltered remnants of the building's prior function mirrors its programmatic emphasis on innovative expression born out of a deep understanding of social, political, and/or cultural history.


      Over the course of more than twenty-five years, Hosfelt Gallery has distinguished itself through the introduction of exceptional new artists from around the world, the intellectual rigor of its programming, its role in nurturing the careers of now internationally-renowned artists, a commitment to showing work that doesn't necessarily align with current trends, and representation of some of the most important artists of the Bay Area and beyond.  In 2015 the gallery founded the first Digital Media Conservation Lab to address the growing need for the preservation of digital and electronic art.  Hosfelt Gallery is a member of the Art Dealers Association of America.

    • We acknowledge the original inhabitants of the place now called San Francisco — the Ramaytush Ohlone, Muwekma, Miwok, Yokuts, Patwin, and other Ohlone peoples. We honor the generational dissemination of indigenous wisdom, as education is central to the programming at Hosfelt Gallery, and we believe it’s only by understanding the past that you can address the present and future.
