Over the past 25 years, Goya Contemporary Gallery and Goya-Girl Press has built a progressive reputation on lifelong commitments to representing & protecting artists and artistic practice; and for creating visionary, historically relevant exhibitions, publications, & scholarship around artists who we believe are the truthtellers of our time.
With a focus on Post War and Contemporary Art in both primary and secondary markets, in addition to an active exhibition schedule, Goya Contemporary Gallery maintains a large archive of fine art print editions, participates in international art fairs, and cultivates, educates, and connects artists with museum, collectors, communities, connoisseurs & researchers.
Goya Contemporary Gallery devotes considerable resources to artists, championing opportunity, sustainability, and legacy. We collaborate with museums and cultural institutions to produce artist surveys that engage discourse around artist’s oeuvres. Recent projects include producing the largest one-person museum retrospective to date on MacArthur Fellow Dr. Joyce J. Scott--for whom Goya remains the primary worldwide representative; Jo Smail retrospective at The Baltimore Museum of Art; 45-year survey of works by American Abstract Geometric painter Timothy App at the Katzen Museum in DC; Sonya Clark’s exhibition on Madam CJ Walker with performances & programming involving foremost scholar & Walker descendant Dr. A’lelia Bundles; Sonya Clark exhibitions at The Fabric Workshop, Wadsworth Atheneum, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Other notable exhibitions include Soledad Salamé, Sanford Biggers, Louise Fishman, Fanny Sanin, Sergio Sister, Sam Gilliam, Kyle Hackett, Liliana Porter, Ana Tiscornia, Elizabeth Talford Scott, Wilhelm Mundt, Charles Mason III, Ann Hamilton, Lynda Benglis, Louise Bourgeois, William Kentridge, Louisa Chase, among others.

Placing art in the world’s top museums & private collections, Goya unobtrusively works with many famous actors, musicians, and major league sports stars, keeping identities and purchases private and protected. Celebrated for exemplary standards of ethics & community contributions, Goya Contemporary Gallery’s global dialogue underscores Baltimore’s larger cultural relevance in our most potent conversations of the time.
