Los Angeles gallery Kayne Griffin Corcoran has added Jamie Goldblatt Manné as a new co-director, joining Colleen Grennan. Genevieve Day acts as the gallery’s senior director. Manné joins Kayne Griffin Corcoran following her time as deputy director of Los Angeles’ Marciano Foundation, where she worked since 2012.
One of the gallery’s partners, Maggie Kane, who founded the gallery in 2012 alongside Bill Griffin and James Corcoran, said of Manné’s appointment, “We couldn’t be happier to welcome Jamie to Kayne Griffin Corcoran and know she will be a tremendous asset as we continually look for new and innovative ways to support and service our artists.”
Manné will be be charged with expanding Kayne Griffin Corcoran’s community outreach programming, as well as managing the gallery’s growing list of artists. Last week, the gallery, which has historically focused on contemporary artists from Southern California, added Brooklyn-based artist Sam Moyer to their lineup. Back in April, they also tapped Anthony Hernandez to join the roster, which also includes artists such as Mary Corse, Ken Price, Hank Willis Thomas, Dara Friedman, and James Turrell.
Kayne explained the mid-size gallery’s goals further, and how Manné aligns with them, adding, “At a moment when the traditional gallery model is changing so rapidly it’s important to think outside of the box. Coming from one of Los Angeles’s most visible arts non-profits, Jamie will bring a fresh perspective and new ideas which we look forward to integrating into the gallery’s vision.”
