Marianne Boesky Gallery Expands Chelsea Space and Closes Lower East Side Outpost

Marianne Boesky Gallery will double its footprint at its flagship Chelsea location by expanding into an adjacent space, Dan Duray of the Art Newspaper reports. After the expansion project, the gallery will be thirteen thousand square feet. It is due to open on June 23 with an exhibition curated by artist and writer Chris Wiley that will showcase works by Jay Heikes, Thornton Dial, and Lee Mullican. Meanwhile, the gallery’s Clinton Street location in the Lower East Side will shut its doors.

“Experimentation with space and architecture in diverse NYC locations, from Chelsea to the Upper East Side to the Lower East Side, has been an essential part of our vision, evolving and growing to meet and complement the changing interests and needs of our artists," Boesky said.
