As of today, the gallery is known as Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino in recognition of its founder’s eighteen year partnership with Allison Armstrong Ayers and Carlos Bacino.
\n\nThe gallery represents a provocative range of artists, from such modernist masters as Jesus Rafael Soto, Alejandro Otero, Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt), and Carlos Cruz-Diez, to internationally recognized contemporary artists, including Oscar Muñoz, Liliana Porter, Marco Maggi, as well as the Estates of León Ferrari, Manuel Espinosa and Mercedes Pardo. These artists have been instrumental in shaping the character and dynamics of the gallery, inspiring an innovative program of solo and cross-generational exhibitions as well as promoting experimental artistic urban projects worldwide. Growing in tandem with the emerging field of modern Latin American art in Houston and the U.S., Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino extends its reach by advancing new models of artistic production and intellectual collaboration with universities, museums, and other cultural organizations. Through strong relationships with artists, curators, art historians, and art collectors, the gallery continues to place its represented artists’ work in seminal museums and collections, build and disseminate research on these artists, and remain a stimulating platform for intellectual debate and creative exploration within the community.\n\nDesigned by Brave Architecture, the gallery building is located in the heart of Houston’s Museum District. The 5,900 sq.ft. gallery includes two floors of exhibition space and a research center with an art archive and a library. Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino is a member of the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), an invitation-only organization that recognizes the highest levels of expertise and professional standards in the art market
