Andy Battaglia, ARTNEWS, February 15, 2019

After seven years in Seattle and a growing reputation garnered at art fairs around the globe, Mariane Ibrahim is closing her namesake gallery in the Pacific Northwest and planning a move to Chicago, where she hopes to be in operation by the end of 2019. Though a new location has not yet been secured, “I have already seen and explored spaces I quite like,” Ibrahim said of a move she has been plotting for a while. “I’m moving to Chicago to be close to galleries I respect very much,” such as Monique Meloche, Patron, and Rhona Hoffman. “It’s dynamic and I like what’s going on there.”
