NEW YORK, NY.- Jane Lombard Gallery
announced that after two decades of exhibitions in Chelsea, they will be moving to a new space in Tribeca. Since the gallerys opening in Soho (originally as Lombard Freid) in 1995, they have presented a global roster of artists whose work explores a wide range of socio-political issues. The new, two-floor, 3000 sq. ft. gallery will be located at 58 White Street , in Tribeca. Designed by Stuart Basseches Architect, it will open in late October 2020 with an exhibition by Dan Perjovschi .
We are excited to start a new chapter for the gallery and to return Downtown. We started out in 1995 up the street in SoHo. It is a sense of neighborhood, and camaraderie that we are looking forward to being part of again, said owner, Jane Lombard . In the new space, we have the ability to show two artists at once or show video without having to black out the windows. With this flexibility, we look forward to continuing our program of thought provoking exhibitions.
The architect for the space, Stuart Basseches , is known for his tasteful minimalism. His work ranges from residential homes on the East End of Long Island to lofts, townhouses and other art galleries in New York City. For the new Jane Lombard Gallery space, Bassechess team, led by Konstantinos Spiropoulos, created special features and paid homage to the Chelsea location through details, such as an integrated bench which references Chelseas low concrete haunch.
The new space will debut in October with an appropriately timed exhibition by Dan Perjovschi who will critique the coming Presidential election, the world and life in general. The gallery will present solo shows by Elizabeth Schwaiger, Kristin McIver, Lu Yang and Sawangwongse Yawnghwe later in 2021.
Jane Lombard Gallery will continue to present digital exhibitions until their Tribeca doors open.
