New York’s White Columns to Relocate in Spring 2018

White Columns, New York’s oldest alternative exhibition venue, has announced that it will be moving from 320 West Thirteenth Street, it’s address for the past twenty years, to Ninety-One Horatio Street—just two blocks from its current location—next spring.

The new White Columns, which will feature 2,500 square feet of exhibition space, will occupy the ground floor of a landmark building close to the Whitney Museum of American Art and the High Line. Architect Stan Allen, who designed the institution’s West Thirteenth Street galleries, will also work on the new space.

“As [White Columns] approaches its fiftieth anniversary, and at a time when the cost of living and working in New York is increasingly prohibitive, the continued vitality and viability of New York’s independent, small-scale, nonprofit cultural organizations could not be more critical,” said Matthew Higgs, the gallery’s director and chief curator.
