UTA STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF JOSH ROTH
On behalf of his family, and with profound sadness, United Talent Agency announces the passing of its beloved colleague, Josh Roth. Josh leaves behind his wife, Sonya, and their children Anabel, Colette, and Henry.
Josh was a recognized and passionate expert, advocate, and patron of the arts, and one of the creative community’s most talented professionals. He founded UTA Fine Arts in 2015 after six years as Chair of the Art Law Department at the law firm of Glaser Weil. At UTA, he represented some of the world’s most prominent fine artists, photographers, mixed media artists and others in the contemporary art world. Most recently, Josh helped conceive and open the UTA Artist Space and staged major projects and exhibitions for world-renowned artists.
UTA Chairman Jim Berkus and CEO Jeremy Zimmer said: “Josh was a dear man and a great colleague, and we are devastated by his loss. His friendships and contributions were deeply felt. He constantly inspired his colleagues and those he represented with his impeccable taste, thoughtfulness, creativity, and absolute dedication. Most importantly, Josh was a wonderful man—devoted to his family, kind in spirt, and generous in every way. UTA is heartbroken.”
