P.R.O. - Peterson Rich Office, 2017-18

The new 20,000-sf Galerie Perrotin space will be one of the largest art galleries on the Lower East Side, representing a dramatic shift in the neighborhood from small storefront exhibitions to museum scale, multi programmed, mega-galleries. Over the past decade, art galleries have played a central role in the changing character of the Lower East Side. There are fifteen times as many galleries in the neighborhood today as there were ten years ago. The vast majority of these spaces occupy small 300-500 sqft tenement storefronts. By contrast, the new Galerie Perrotin will occupy five stories in the historic Beckenstein Building, and will include multiple exhibition spaces, offices, a bookstore, residences, and support spaces. By offering visitors this varied programming, the new facility will blur the lines between institution and commercial art gallery. For OHNY Galerie Perrotin will open its doors to the Phase 1 portion of the project, which opened in April 2017, as well as select spaces currently under construction for the Phase 2 opening in Spring 2018.

Saturday & Sunday Tour Info: OpenDialogue tours with Peterson Rich Office principals Nathan Rich and Miriam Peterson will last approximately 45 min.

Access Notes: The areas currently under construction will not be accessible to wheelchairs at the time of OHNY.
