Gerard Goodrow

Gerard Goodrow, the former director of the biggest in Germany art fair, Art Cologne, joins auction house Phillips de Pury & Co. as Б contemporary art specialist and a business development director at a new office and showroom in Cologne.

Gerard Goodrow left the world’s oldest art fair in January under pressure from Cologne art dealers who complained in an open letter that Art Cologne had suffered bitter loss of status. The fair is struggling to compete with similar events in London, Miami, Basel and Berlin and has lost visitors and international exhibitors. Goodrow’s replacement, Los Angeles gallery owner Daniel Hug, takes up his new position on May 1.

Goodrow, 43, is an American who has acquired German citizenship. Before joining Art Cologne, he was a director of contemporary art at Christie’s International in London. He was director of Art Cologne for almost five years.

New York-based Phillips de Pury sells contemporary art and jewelry at auctions in London, New York and Geneva.
