Renowned American artists Bruce Nauman and Susan Rothenberg have been with the gallery since 1975 and 1987, respectively. They are joined by an international roster including Jitish Kallat, Guillermo Kuitca, Katy Moran, and the estates of Malcolm Morley and Otto Piene, among others. Sperone Westwater also has in its inventory work by Carla Accardi, Alighiero Boetti, Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni, Mario Merz, Julian Schnabel, Richard Tuttle, and others. The gallery maintains an active historical program, with an ongoing commitment to Arte Povera and the ZERO Group. Heinz Mack has presented four solo shows at the gallery; Otto Piene presented a solo show in 2010 and the gallery mounted a major Piene survey in collaboration with the artist’s estate in 2016. Other significant historical exhibitions have included shows of early work by Louise Bourgeois and Cy Twombly in 1989; \
