Leading photography gallery Higher Pictures Generation opens in DUMBO
Higher Pictures Generation is a new iteration of Higher Pictures, Kim Bourus’ former gallery on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.

BROOKLYN, NY.- Two Trees Management today announced that Higher Pictures Generation, a photography-focused contemporary art gallery, has opened at 16 Main Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The gallery leased a jewel-box, street-level exhibition space adjacent to the entrance of Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Higher Pictures Generation’s exhibition program will focus on artists’ first shows, both historical and contemporary. The inaugural exhibition showcases new works by Gina Osterloh, whose art explores selfhood, identity, and the perception of difference. The exhibition will remain on view until December 12, 2020. The upcoming exhibition is a group show titled We Wear the Mask, curated by D’Angelo Lovell Williams, which will open on December 19, 2020 and run through February of 2021.

“We are thrilled that 16 Main Street in DUMBO is the site of Higher Pictures Generation’s new Brooklyn gallery. Their impressive program is a perfect fit for the neighborhood,” said Kate Gavriel, Director of Cultural Affairs for Two Trees Management. “The addition of Higher Pictures Generation enhances our vision of sustaining a vibrant and diverse group of arts tenants for DUMBO.”

Higher Pictures Generation is a new iteration of Higher Pictures, Kim Bourus’ former gallery on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Higher Pictures presented a range of artists including photographic experimentalist Jessica Eaton and Brooklyn-based artist Nona Faustine.

With Higher Pictures Generation Kim Bourus partners with art dealer Janice Guy and curator Marina Chao. “If there is one thing we've learned, it's that people will travel anywhere to see good art curated well. But to visit our new DUMBO location, they won’t have to go far,” said Marina Chao. “Each of us has extensive art world experience. Opening a gallery now is pursuant to our enduring commitment to art and the community,” said Janice Guy. “It’s been a few years since the closure, after 19 years, of my previous gallery Murray Guy. How could I resist upgrading Higher Pictures with Generation. After all this is our life -- artists, curators, writers and collectors.”

Immediately accessible from the street, Higher Pictures Generation will offer contactless entry to ensure safety for visitors. The gallery is open Tuesday (by appointment) and Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 6pm (to the public).

Originally completed in 1906, 16 Main Street, known as the Stable Building, lies in the heart of DUMBO, one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in all of New York City. Built by Turner Construction Company as a stable for Robert Gair, the manufacturer who invented the cardboard box, the building is the one of the first examples of reinforced concrete construction in New York City. Now, over a century later, the building houses four white cube gallery spaces with 16-foot ceilings, with large windows facing Main Street and Water Street.
