The Zwirner Gallery opened in 1993 on the ground floor of 43 Greene Street in SoHo in New York City,[2] with a one-man show of the Austrian sculptor Franz West.[3][4]

In 2002 it moved to 525 West 19th Street in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York.[5] In 2012 it opened a 930 m2 (10,000 sq ft) London branch in Grafton Street, in Mayfair, and built a large new space, designed by Annabelle Selldorf, at 537 West 20th Street, Chelsea, New York.[6]

In September 2017 it opened an Upper East Side space in a 1907 townhouse off Madison Avenue, re-designed by Selldorf.[7] A 930 m2 (10,000 sq ft) space[8] at the H Queen's building in Hong Kong was also designed by Selldorf.[1][9]

In 2019 the gallery opened an 800 m2 (8,600 sq ft) outpost in the Marais district of Paris, its first in continental Europe.[10][11]

According to The New York Times in 2018, the gallery reports annual revenue of 500 million dollars.[12] Given the overall size of its operations, it is often compared to Gagosian Gallery and Hauser & Wirth.[13]
