Yancey Richardson Gallery is pleased to announce the relocation of the gallery to street level premises at 525 West 22nd Street. After thirteen successful years on the third floor of 535 West 22nd Street, the growth of the gallery and the growing international visibility of our artists have compelled owner Yancey Richardson to take a more prominent position at street level.
"After searching for over two years for a storefront space that will afford the gallery exhibitions and the artists' work greater visibility by a wider audience, I am thrilled to have secured a space that allows us to remain on 22nd Street, one of the most beautiful and prestigious blocks in the art world," says Richardson.
Dean Maltz Architects was once again selected to design the new space, having designed the gallery's current location, as well as Richardson's first gallery in Soho. As the U.S. partner of architect Shigeru Ban, Dean Maltz is simultaneously engaged with the design of the new Aspen Art Museum.
Yancey Richardson Gallery opened to the public in 1995 in the renowned 560 Broadway building in historic Soho. In 2000, the gallery moved to its current premises in the heart of New York's Chelsea art district. The gallery is committed to working closely with both emerging and established artists to develop their practice and promote their work on an international basis. The gallery roster includes critically recognized, emerging artists such as Alex Prager, Zanele Muholi, and Victoria Sambunaris, as well as established mid-career artists such as Sharon Core, Mitch Epstein, Jitka Hanzlova, Laura Letinsky, Andrew Moore, Sebastiao Salgado, and Hellen van Meene.
The gallery will open their inaugural exhibition at 525 W 22nd Street on Thursday, September 19th with a selection of large-scale photographs by renowned Italian artist Olivo Barbieri from his new series Alps, Geographies and People.
