Johannes Vogt Gallery Moves From Lower East Side to Madison Avenue

New York City’s Johannes Vogt Gallery will head uptown this month, relocating from 55 Chrystie Street in the Lower East Side to 958 Madison Avenue, between Seventy-Fifth and Seventy-Sixth Street. The new second-floor location, which will include two separate exhibition spaces, will sit one block from the Met Breuer, whose building priorly belonged to the Whitney Museum of American Art. 

The move makes the gallery, which skews toward emerging and established artists underecognized in the US, closer to blue-chip galleries including David Zwirner, Lévy Gorvy, Gagosian, Petzel, and Michael Werner—but also the international galleries and project spaces that have opened in recent years like Almine Rech, Boers-Li, Clearing, Galeria Nara Roesler, Mendes Wood DM, Kurimanzutto, and Galerie Buchholz.

Johannes Vogt Gallery, which first opened in Chelsea in 2011, had been at its Lower East Side location since 2016. Its new venue will open on September 20 with a solo exhibition by Abby Leigh. “We are delighted to bring the dynamism and energy of our program to the Upper East Side,” Johannes Vogt, the owner of the gallery, said in a statement. “We hope to shine a different light that will add some contrast and even some surprise.”
