The new 5,000 square foot space, on the second floor of the historic 52 Walker Street building and adjacent to James Cohan’s 48 Walker Street location, will open on 7 October 2021, with a solo exhibition of work by Gauri Gill. The space is being designed by longtime gallery collaborator HS2 Architects.
“Opening a neighboring space allows us to present concurrent exhibitions that resonate. In October we will present the first U.S. solo gallery shows for two international superstars, reflecting the international breadth of our program: photographer Gauri Gill, and multimedia artist and activist Emeka Ogboh. Looking forward, we will present the gallery’s first solo show with New York-based artist Christopher Myers, featuring his new tapestry works at 52 Walker, and will present new ceramic sculptures by another New York artist, Kathy Butterly, at 48 Walker. Both artists use craft media to explore contemporary concepts of narrative and form," said Jane Cohan in a statement.
