New York, NY (February 23, 2023)—The Partners of Marian Goodman Gallery announced plans to open in a new home in downtown Manhattan in mid-to-late 2024. The Gallery’s new headquarters—the historic Grosvenor Building, a former warehouse building in Tribeca at 385 Broadway, between White and Walker Streets—will feature approximately 30,000 square feet of space, including two floors of open galleries, as well as viewing rooms, a library and archive, art storage, and administrative offices. Originally built in 1875, the five-story building will undergo a restoration and renovation by studioMDA, a New York-based architectural firm known for its work in the cultural sphere. With naturally lit, street-level exhibition spaces, the new location will increase public access to the Gallery’s program and its artists, who are considered among the most innovative and influential of our time.

The move to a new, expanded location in New York City marks a pivotal step for the Gallery under the leadership of President and Partner Philipp Kaiser, Managing Partners Emily-Jane Kirwan and Rose Lord, and Partners Leslie Nolen and Junette Teng. The Gallery’s plans for its new home in New York comes as it continues preparations for its new venue in Los Angeles, scheduled to open midyear this year.

“Our new home will support an expanded program, serve a larger audience, and enable greater impact for our artists. We have long considered a possible move downtown and the opportunity to move into this historic building in Tribeca, with its flexibility of space, its light, and engagement with life of the city, was a critical factor for the Partners in advancing the Gallery’s global profile and presence,” said Kaiser.

“The Partners are energized by this opportunity to build upon the community of artist-centric spaces in Tribeca, both the commercial and not-for-profit arts organizations, and by the visibility that this new location will afford our artists and their work,” said Lord. Added Kirwan, “It will be exciting to join our gallery colleagues in the area, so many of them women. The entire team is inspired, and the artists we represent are extremely supportive of this move, which brings the Gallery forward into a new chapter.”

Marian Goodman Gallery New York will continue operating its current location at 57th Street through mid-2024. The Gallery is currently presenting Andrea Fraser until February 25 and Cerith Wyn Evans: …no field of vision through March 4, alongside Spacetime, a special project by Gabriel Orozco. In Paris, Cerith Wyn Evansno realm of thought… is on view through March 4.
