Benjamin Genocchio: “For a lot of us, life happens in phases. Some phases seem like they would last forever, but as it turns out, they do not! But that only pushes us onto better and bigger things that we never would have imagined.”

Benjamin Genocchio is a living breathing example of this. After his stint at the Armory Show art fair in New York, wherein two years according to the reviews he transformed the 25-year-old business and more or less reinvented the idea of an art fair (orienting it far more towards everyday visitors), he decided to move on to another enterprise in New York, setting up two galleries on the Upper East Side for the Swiss-based secondary market art dealer Gmurzynska. Now two years later he has decided to stay in art dealing and has joined Shoshana Wayne Gallery of Los Angeles to set up a New York office where he is currently a director at large. They have recently announced plans to move their L.A. space to a new custom-built location on West Jefferson Boulevard on the edge of Culver City. When it came to picking a new director, nobody was a better fit for the job than Dr. Benjamin Genocchio.

Being the director at large for Shoshana Wayne Gallery is the realization of a long-held desire by Benjamin Genocchio to work with living artists after years of just writing about them. Shoshana Wayne Gallery is one of the oldest most prestigious galleries in Los Angeles with a 35-year rich history. It first opened in 1986 in Santa Monica, California. Over the years, it has shown a spread of important artists, including Yoko Ono, Nicole Eisenman, Michal Rovner, Beverly Semmes, Dinh Q. Lę, Elaine Reichek, Mounir Fatmi, Kathy Butterly, and more. Deciding to work with Dr. Benjamin Genocchio was a no-brainer for them. His years of writing, editing, and traveling trained his judgment and taste and his experience at the Armory Show gave him a broad overview of current trends in the art world. There is no better critic or art dealer than a person with good taste who isn’t afraid to speak his mind.

The Shoshana Wayne Gallery is embarking on a new chapter in its history with a custom-built 5000 square foot exhibition space that is set to open early next year. The timing of this opening couldn’t have been more perfect, considering Dr. Benjamin Genocchio desire to work with living artists. His years of working with Artnet as their Editor in Chief after he founded and established Artnet news, a business built from scratch, brought along with it a broader influence in the art world and collector community.

As a young adult, Dr. Benjamin Genocchio only dreamt of one thing. That thing was to be a part of this world that he had always admired from afar in Australia where he grew up. But wanting to do something doesn’t mean one necessarily does it. Benjamin Genocchio brought his words into action with hard work and patience. From publishing a daring expose in 2008 of the Aboriginal art world that was also controversial to becoming an editor and then editorial director for prestigious art magazines and websites, he has come a far way. Now the new chapter in his life has brought him to Shoshana Wayne gallery. But he will continue writing on art and artists, he has said in interviews, which is his first love and passion.
