Lehmann Maupin Plans to Open New Gallery in Chelsea

Lehmann Maupin Gallery has announced that it has plans to open a new gallery in Chelsea. Located at West 24th Street and 10th Avenue in the former home of the Getty Gas Station, it is adjacent to High Line park.

The new location boasts 8,500 square feet and encompasses three floors. Interiors are being designed by architect Peter Marino. They will feature exhibition spaces, private viewing rooms, and offices.

“West 24th Street will be the primary location of our business,” gallery founder David Maupin said. “Chelsea remains an important hub of the New York contemporary art scene. We represent a growing roster of renowned international artists, and it is important for us to be able to offer additional exhibition options and exposure within the area. This new space, which is uniquely our own, will provide us with the opportunity to present up to three exhibitions in Chelsea at a time.” The gallery's expected completion date is 2017.
