Andrew Jensen’s first gallery opened in March 1988. He expanded to Wellington in 1994, Auckland in 1997 and then Sydney in 2011 where he is now based with Emma Fox who has been the Director of Fox Jensen Auckland since 2011. Sarah McCrory joined the gallery in 2010 and is now the Director of the Auckland gallery.

Over the course of thirty years the gallery has set itself aside in terms of its seamless presentation of international work alongside the most considered practices from the region. Presenting exhibitions by major artists such as Imi Knoebel, Fred Sandback, Tony Oursler, Helmut Federle, Günter Umberg, James Casebere, Winston Roeth, Jacqueline Humphries, Elisabeth Vary and Callum Innes altered and enriched the “local” conditions. It provided the basis for a an increasingly expansive approach which has seen the curated aspect of the gallery grow. There have been numerous notable projects including E=MC2 (Sandback, Umberg, Innes), Naked, The Architecture of Colour, Points of Orientation, Detox and most recently The Authority of Death. These projects introduced the work of artists such as Eric Fischl, John McLaughlin, Marina Abramovic, Carolee Schneemann, Agnes Martin, Joseph Albers, Karin Sander, Gabriel de la Mora, Tracey Emin and Spencer Finch.

Australian artists Jude Rae, Tomislav Nikolic, Aida Tomescu, Judith Wright, Coen Young, Ceara Metlikovec, New Zealand artists Geoff Thornley, Leigh Martin, Sam Harrison, Gary McMillan and Natalie Guy form a vital aspect of the galleries program and sit logically and coherently in this broader ecology.

Both Andrew Jensen and Emma Fox continue to travel regularly and extensively and recent trips have seen the gallery expand further to include the representation of new artists including the British painter Erin Lawlor, German artist Jan Albers, Amsterdam based Australian Matthew Allen.
