ZieherSmith is pleased to announce our Grand Reopening in a 3500 square foot, storefront gallery at 516 West 20th Street. Designed by Dufner Heighes Architects and constructed by BILT/DFI, the new space more than doubles the size of our previous location, expanding the ability to provide a visible and welcoming forum for contemporary art.
Grand Reopening features a selection of ZieherSmith’s represented artists including new, large-scale work by Wes Lang and Eddie Martinez, a kinetic installation and collage-work by Javier Piñón, paintings by Liz Markus and Chuck Webster, and sculpture by Rachel Owens and Mike Womack. Adorning the new façade is a Tucker Nichols’ banner, featured on the postcard, and inspired by an existing drawing by the artist and the following clause in the gallery’s new lease: Tenant shall not… install any banner, flag or the like on the exterior of the Building without the specific prior approval of Landlord other than any banner with the words “Grand Opening” or words of similar import, which banner shall be permitted during the first ninety (90) days of the Term only.
The gallery’s forthcoming schedule will include exhibitions by renowned French artist Stéphane Calais; the New York debut of British artist Matt Stokes’s these are the days, a video installation co-produced by ZieherSmith and Arthouse, Austin; and book launches for the Stokes catalogue as well as Wes Lang’s The Paradise Club and Scott Zieher’s Band of Bikers.
