One of Sorokko’s main initiatives was advancing the virtually nonexistent public profile of the underground art movement then taking place in the Soviet Union, which included works by expatriates who had relocated to the West, as well as the multitude who remained. With the advent of glasnost, in 1988, Sorokko orchestrated and sponsored an unprecedented return to the Soviet Union of the exiled Russian artist Mihail Chemiakin, for a retrospective exhibition at the Moscow Tretyakov Gallery. It was then that Sorokko met Tair Salakhov, First Secretary of the Union of Soviet Artists. Together with Salakhov, Sorokko has been directly involved with bringing art exhibitions to museum venues in Russia and, in exchange, showing established, but never before seen in the West, Russian artists in his galleries in the U.S.

In 1996, Sorokko sold his interest in the Bowles/Sorokko Galleries and opened the spacious, three-story Serge Sorokko Gallery on Union Square, in San Francisco, and one year later, in 1997, a second three-storey gallery on West Broadway, in New York City’s SoHo district. The inaugural exhibition in New York, which, according to David Schonauer, editor-in-chief of American Photo magazine, became “the inspiration for the special issue of American Photo,” was the critically acclaimed multimedia and photography installation entitled “The Last Party: Nightworld in Photographs”. The show was timed to coincide with the would-be 20th anniversary of Studio 54 and release of Anthony Haden-Guest’s nightlife chronicle, The Last Party: Studio 54, Disco and the Culture of the Night. A diverse group of American and European artists on exhibit spanned an entire century. According to the British Independent, the “opening gala of the Serge Sorokko Gallery in SoHo was so crowded that even Spike Lee cooled his heels on the sidewalk rather than brave the crush. The gallery featured an exhibition of hundreds of photographs of the club scene by Diane Arbus, Weegee, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton and assorted paparazzi, serving as photographic crib sheets for the thousands of guests at the opening. There were photos of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall; of Cher and of Eddie Murphy; of bare-breasted teenage club-girls with glitter on their faces; of deeply stoned couples in hotpants and afros, goosing each other in front of punk clubs; and of fashion-world luminaries staring at naked, writhing performance artists.” Describing the “mob of guests kept out of the overpacked gallery by bouncers,” columnist Bob Morris wrote in The New York Times: “And this door scene was bad. Tina Louise was shut outside far too long for a Gilligan’s Island icon. Richard Johnson, the editor of the New York Post’s Page Six, was stuck outside for a while, too… Robert Altman couldn’t get in either. What could be more delicious than looking out on someone that important among a crowd being squished against the gallery window like insects on a windshield?” “The Last Party is a fascinating exhibition,” declared the British journalist and author Suzy Menkes in the International Herald Tribune, “because of the wide variety of its 60 different photographers and 300 images excellently orchestrated and hung. But also because it captures its subjects unselfconsciously. In that, it pinions a butterfly moment of social history.”

In March 2007, Sorokko staged a U.S. premiere of New Religion, the multimedia installation of the British artist Damien Hirst, and in September 2007 – a world premiere of rare drawings by the renowned 16th century Italian artist Jacopo Strada. Entitled “Jacopo Strada (1510 – 1588). Mannerist Splendor: Extravagant Designs for a Royal Table”, the exhibition was accompanied by a hard cover catalogue authored by Dr. Sarah Lawrence, director of the Master of Arts Program in Decorative Arts and Design at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York.

Also in 2008, Sorokko published 10 Iris Prints, a portfolio of photographs by the American fashion designer turned photographer James Galanos.

In 2010, Serge Sorokko Gallery moved from its location on Grant Avenue to a much larger ground floor space at 55 Geary Street, on Union Square in San Francisco. The new gallery’s inaugural exhibition was a world premiere of a site-specific installation of paintings, trompe l’oeil works on paper and sculptures by the renowned Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave.
