Eli Klein Gallery is moving to Chelsea
The new gallery boasts over 8,000 square feet of space and will open on January 9, 2014 with a solo exhibition for Li Hongbo.
NEW YORK, NY.- Eli Klein Gallery announced that they are moving to a new street-level location at 525 West 22nd Street, in the heart of New York's Chelsea art district. The new gallery boasts over 8,000 square feet of space and will open on January 9, 2014 with a solo exhibition for Li Hongbo.

The new location allows them to stage large exhibitions of painting, sculpture, photography, and video, making it the most significant gallery venue dedicated to Chinese contemporary art in the West. The gallery will present a fully expanded academic program and offer a unique library of literature on Chinese contemporary art. They will also host an artist residency program that will be housed in the lower level of the new space, which will focus on exceptional emerging talent from China.

With the Chinese art market now responsible for a quarter of global art sales,[1] high-level representation of Chinese artists is necessary in Chelsea--the center of the New York art world. "Our move to Chelsea was driven by expanding needs, including an adaptable exhibition space to accommodate large-scale installations," said Eli Klein. "We truly feel this location will assist in fulfilling our mission to offer extraordinary Chinese contemporary works of art to the global art community."

Eli Klein Gallery will open in their new location on January 9, 2014 with Li Hongbo's first U.S. solo exhibition, "Tools of Study." Inspired by folk art, the artist painstakingly stacks layer after layer of paper, one on top of another, to sculpt expandable works of art--creating pieces that bend the mind.
