Jayne H. Baum opened JHB Gallery in 1982 with a strong focus on contemporary art and interdisciplinary practices. JHB Gallery became known in the mid 80s as one of the first galleries in New York dedicated to contemporary photography and experimental image making. In 1984, the gallery moved to Tribeca, expanding its physical size and program, with an exhibition schedule of ten shows per year. JHB Gallery relocated again in 1988 into a larger space in SoHo at 588 Broadway, with a series of exhibitions focusing of the work of contemporary artists using the camera and influenced by media and new technologies. Today, JHB Gallery works with a range of contemporary international artists to curate exhibitions in the West Village space, and across alternative platforms.
