Malin Gallery (formerly Burning in Water Gallery) is a New York-based contemporary art gallery. With a close-knit group of roster artists and industry professionals, Malin Gallery is a 21st century gallery that still maintains a classical value system of integrity, scholarship, and long-term support of individual artists.
Founded in 2015 by Dr. Barry Thomas Malin as Burning in Water, Malin Gallery actively represents a diverse roster of living artists. The curatorial program combines exhibitions by roster artists with historically-oriented shows, particularly of work by previously under-recognized artists. The gallery’s progressive approach to curation has earned it a reputation in both introducing and re-introducing important artists to a NY audience. Malin Gallery exhibitions have been reviewed in multiple national publications, including The New York Times, The New Yorker, Artforum, The Wall Street Journal, ARTnews, Time Out - New York, Galerie, The San Francisco Chronicle, The London Review of Books and Artnet News.
Gallery artists are included in renowned public collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Whitney Museum of American Art; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; Saint Louis Art Museum; and New Orleans Museum of Art. Gallery artists have also received important grants and awards such as Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, NYFA, National Endowment for the Arts Award, Robert Rauschenberg Fellowship, and Art for Justice Fund Grant.
