Peter Blum Gallery in New York is relocating to a new 7,000-square-foot, second-floor space downtown, Nate Freeman of Artnews reports. Located at 176 Grand Street, the gallery will open in September with an exhibition of works by John Zurier.
“After having been informed that our building on West Fifty-Seventh Street, along with four neighboring buildings, will be torn down for another high rise, we looked at many different places and areas which would suit our needs for a substantial size gallery in an area which was not overrun and still felt like ‘New York,’” director David Blum said.
The gallery first learned that it had to move out of its home, which it shared with Washburn Gallery and Laurence Miller Gallery, in February. It also announced that it is now representing Miles Coolidge, Paul Fägerskiöld, and Enoc Perez, as well as the estates of Chris Marker and Sonja Sekula.
