NEW YORK, NY.- Almine Rech
announced plans for a permanent expansion in New Yorks downtown Tribeca neighborhood opening in 2023, marking the gallerys new flagship location in the U.S. Housed within a 134-year-old landmarked building recently renovated by Pritzker prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban, the 10,000 square foot space is situated at 361 Broadway (Franklin St./Broadway). The original Almine Rech location in New York will remain active on the Upper East Side.
Since we opened in New York in 2016, over 20 US-based artists have joined the gallery. We needed to increase the range of opportunities we could offer them locally. Tribeca was already on our radar since we started considering an expansion but, ultimately, it was feedback from our artists that solidified our location choice." - Paul de Froment, Managing Partner, New York.
"We were looking for a beautiful, adaptable and dynamic large new space downtown." - Almine Rech.
"The gallery's scale will provide amazing possibilities for our artists. We trust they will take advantage of the venue to produce some of their most ambitious exhibitions to date." - Ethan Buchsbaum, Senior Director, New York.
Almine Rech maintains additional locations in Paris, Brussels, London and Shanghai.
