John Weber was an art dealer known for his early support of Conceptual Art, Post-Minimalist sculpture and Italian Arte Povera. He began his gallery career as director of the Martha Jackson Gallery in New York in 1960 where he helped show the work of Pop artists such as Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenberg, Jim Dine, and Robert Indiana. He moved from that gallery to Los Angeles to work at the Virginia Dwan Gallery, where they showed French New Realist and Minimalist art and the work of earthworks artists such as Robert Smithson and others. In 1968 the gallery relocated to New York. A few years later, Weber opened his own gallery at 420 West Broadway in Soho. The gallery later moved to Chelsea, closing in 2000.
