re.riddle presents unique programming showcased in site-specific exhibitions and pop up events in San Francisco, Paris and London. The itinerant gallery curates socially engaging and multidisciplinary exhibitions of contemporary art. Our mission is to contribute to the discourse of contemporary art in thought provoking and playfully subversive ways, via the presentation of art in new modes of production, reception and consumption. With an emphasis on the whimsical, re.riddle hopes to arouse curiosity and promote an awareness of art in its many forms within our daily surroundings.
In addition to our curatorial program, re.riddle assists collectors with acquisitions, collection management and collection development.
