Barbara Gladstone (born Barbara Levitt) is an American art dealer and film producer.[1][2] She is owner of Gladstone Gallery, a contemporary art gallery with locations at 515 W. 24th Street, 30 West 21st Street in New York City and at 12 Rue du Grand Cerf in Brussels, Belgium.[3] Before moving to Chelsea in 1996, Gladstone Gallery was located in Soho and on 57th Street in New York City.

Gallery activity[edit]

In the early 1990s, Gladstone collaborated with Christian Stein, an Italian art dealer, on SteinGladstone. Located in a renovated firehouse at 99 Wooster Street in Soho, the gallery concentrated exclusively on rarely seen installation works by both Italian and American artists.[4]

Gladstone Gallery today represents many contemporary artists, including Ugo Rondinone, Shirin Neshat, Anish Kapoor, Sarah Lucas, Matthew Barney, Rebecca Quaytman, Victor Man and Andro Wekua.

Film production[edit]

Gladstone has produced many of Matthew Barney's movies, including four films from The Cremaster Cycle and the 2006 movie Drawing Restraint 9, a collaboration between Barney and Björk. Gladstone appears in Drawing Restraint 13, a later film by Barney. Gladstone also produced the film Women Without Men.

Stuart Regen Visionaries Fund[edit]

In 2008, Gladstone initiated the formation of the Stuart Regen Visionaries Fund at the New Museum, established in honor of her late son and renowned art dealer Stuart Regen. The gift is meant to support a series of public lectures and presentations by cultural visionaries and debuted in 2009 with choreographer Bill T. Jones. It has featured prominent international thinkers in the fields of art, architecture, design and contemporary culture. Past speakers have included Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia (2010), Alice Waters (2011) and Maya Lin (2013).

Personal life[edit]

Gladstone was married to the late Elliot B. Regen.[5] 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.[6]
