Barbara Gladstone is an American gallery owner and art dealer. She owns the Gladstone Gallery with locations on W. 24th St in New York City, situated in an 8,500 sq. ft space designed by Annabelle Selldorf, and in Brussels. Before moving to Chelsea in 1996, Gladstone Gallery was located at 99 Greene Street in Soho.
In the early 1990s, Gladstone collaborated with Christian Stein, an Italian art dealer, on SteinGladstone. Located in a renovated firehouse at 99 Wooster Street, the gallery concentrated exclusively on rarely seen installation works by both Italian and American artists. Gladstone Gallery today represents many contemporary artists, including Shirin Neshat, Anish Kapoor, Sarah Lucas, and Matthew Barney. Gladstone has produced many of Barney's movies, including four films from The Cremaster Cycle and the 2006 movie Drawing Restraint 9, a collaboration between Barney and Björk. Gladstone also appears in Drawing Restraint 13, a later film by Barney. Gladstone also produced the film Women Without Men.
In 2008, Gladstone initiated the formation of the Stuart Regen Visionaries Fund at the New Museum, established in honor of the her late son and renowned art dealer. The gift is meant to support a new series of public lectures and presentations by cultural visionaries, the Visionaries Series, which debuted in 2009 and features prominent international thinkers in the fields of art, architecture, design and contemporary culture; past speakers have included Alice Waters and Jimmy Wales.
Born Barbara Levitt, Gladstone was married to the late Elliot B. Regen. She has two sons, David and Richard Regen; her third son, Stuart Regen, died in 1998 at USC Kenneth Norris Jr. Cancer Hospital of non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
