Andrew Kreps to Relocate from Chelsea to TriBeCa

In May 2019, Andrew Kreps will head from Chelsea to a two-floor, ten-thousand-square-foot gallery at 22 Cortlandt Alley in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood, reports Artnews. It will be designed by Markus Dochantschi of StudioMDA and will be around the corner from 55 Walker—the old home of the nonprofit Artists Space—which Andrew Kreps, Bortolami, and Kaufmann Repetto have been operating as a project space, featuring recent exhibitions organized by Blank Forms, Song Cycle, Manila Institute, and O.O. & M.M., this fall. “The two spaces will allow our artists the opportunity to exhibit in both a traditional gallery space, as well as a raw, architectural space, and will additionally foster a larger sense of collaboration with peers in the area,” Alex Fitzgerald, associate director at Andrew Kreps, told Artnews.

Artists Space’s new home will be nearby at the 80 White Street building in TriBeCa, where the Bronx Museum of the Arts will also open an outpost in 2019. Postmasters, Queer Thoughts, Alexander & Bonin, Ortuzar Projects, and the National Exemplar are among the other galleries to have arrived in the neighborhood in recent years.
