Tanya Bonakdar Gallery is an art gallery located in Chelsea in New York City founded by Tanya Bonakdar. Since its inception in 1994, the gallery has maintained a consistent and rigorous program in the exhibition of new work by contemporary artists in all media, including painting, sculpture, installation, photography, and video.

The gallery represents over 30 internationally recognized artists, including established figures Uta Barth, Mark Dion, Olafur Eliasson, Ernesto Neto, Susan Philipsz, Thomas Scheibitz, Sarah Sze, Gillian Wearing, Liz Larner and Haim Steinbach. Tanya Bonakdar is also committed to introducing the work of a younger generation of artists, promoting and assisting them as their careers develop.


Originally located in SoHo, the gallery moved to Chelsea in 1998, and in 2006 underwent a major renovation that doubled the exhibition space, adding 5,000 square feet (460 m2) of gallery space on the ground floor. The exhibition schedule utilizes both the upstairs and downstairs galleries, showing work by two different artists concurrently, and rotating exhibitions approximately every six weeks for 10-12 shows per year. In addition, Tanya Bonakdar regularly participates in the major annual international art fairs such as Art Basel, Frieze Art Fair, Art Basel Miami Beach, The Armory Show (art fair) and Art Dealers Association of America Art Show.[1]

Tanya Bonakdar is a member of the Board of Directors of the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA).[2]
