This will be the gallery’s fourth permanent exhibition space, after two in London and a third in Milan. Its inaugural exhibition will be of recent paintings by the Cuban-born artist Carmen Herrera. Alex Logsdail will head the New York space, which will total 8,500 square feet, 4,500 square feet of which will be gallery space and the other 4,000 devoted to offices, viewing spaces, and storage. The gallery will be housed in a new building under the High Line between Twenty-Fourth and Twenty-Third Streets and designed by studioMDA and Studio Christian Wassmann.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Dee Gallery, which is currently located in Chelsea where it has been for the last fifteen years, will be moving and expanding into a space at 2033/2037 Fifth Avenue, the original site of the Studio Museum in Harlem.
The 12,000-square foot, 1940s-era building is situated next to The National Black Theatre and will open to the public sometime in spring 2016. The gallery also hopes to establish a new educational initiative for Harlem-based children in a joint venture with local non-profit institutions and schools.
