DON’T MISS THE Top 10 Art Galleries in Soho, Tribeca and the West Village
“Pretty much any contemporary artist whose auction prices have gone north of six figures can expect super dealer Larry Gagosian to come calling with enticements to join his gallery. This penchant for raiding other galleries is just how Gagosian rolls, but it’s also the reason for his success in making himself the single biggest dealer in the world.”
Hauser & Wirth
“Located in a stylishly renovated townhouse, this space is the New York branch of the powerhouse gallery based in London and Zurich. The gallery represents well-established contemporary artists whose careers have stretched over decades – figures like Paul McCarthy and Ida Applebroog, for example – as well as younger artists like the Polish painter Jakub Julian Ziolkowski.”
“Werner represents some of the most important artists of our time, including Marcel Broodthaers, James Lee Byars and Thomas Houseago. In addition to contemporary American and European painting, sculpture and drawing, the gallery specializes in works by modern masters, including Hans Arp and Wilhelm Lehmbruck.”
“Gladstone’s uptown location features the gallery’s program of contemporary art in the landmarked setting of an 1876 Upper East Side townhouse redesigned in 1956 by modernist architect Edward Durell Stone. Its sleek interior has served as a stylish backdrop for exhibitions by such artists as Elizabeth Peyton, Carroll Dunham and Pierre Klossowski.”
“Dealer and man-about-art-world Bill Powers opened this hideaway gallery in 2011 as a showcase for the hippest of hip artists. The place is easy to miss because you have to cross a courtyard-slash-alleyway wedged between two buildings before you get to the entrance. Once inside you’ll encounter a lively program with an emphasis on funky art.”
“Venus opened in 2012 in the same Madison Avenue building that houses Gagosian Gallery. The brainchild of collector-turned-dealer Adam Lindemann, Venus offers a menu of curated exhibitions of artists both historic (Alexander Calder) and contemporary (Raymond Pettibon), with the latter including figures that have been somewhat overlooked (Jack Goldstein). Venus also has a branch in Los Angeles.”
“Per Skarstedt originally began as a gallerist and private dealer in Stockholm, before opening his New York gallery on the Upper East Side in 1994. He mostly deals with the crème de la crème of contemporary artists from the past 30 years – figures such as John Baldessari, Cindy Sherman and Robert Mapplethorpe, to name just a few.”

“Museum-quality exhibitions by major postwar artists are bread-and-butter of the swank gallery run by powerhouse dealer Robert Mnuchin. C&M Arts as it was called became L&M Arts in 2005 when Parisian gallerist Dominique Lévy replaced Corcoran as a partner. Mnuchin has been running the place on his own since 2013, presenting shows by Morris Louis and David Hammons, among others.”
“Friedrich Petzel opened his namesake gallery in Soho in 1994 before moving to Chelsea in 2000. In 2015, he expanded to this Upper East Side townhouse. He continues to represent some of the brightest stars on the international scene, including sculptor Keith Edmier, painter and filmmaker Sarah Morris and installation artist Philippe Parreno.”
“Dominique Lévy opened her own gallery in 2013, which she shared with fellow French dealer Emmanuel Perrotin. A the end of 2016, Perrotin decamped to the Lower East Side, and Lévy partnered with Brett Gorvy. They’ve renamed the gallery Lévy Gorvy with a focus on masterworks of post-war art and contemporary art.”
