Monya Rowe Gallery

Gallery in The Lower East Side area

In September 2013 Monya Rowe Gallery relocated to a ground floor space in the Lower East Side after 5 years of being on West 22nd Street in Chelsea. The gallery is positioned between Miguel Abreu Gallery and Kerry Schuss and on the same block as Untitled, and across the street from Gasser Grunert. The new location has a larger exhibition space, including basement-level exhbition space, which will allow the gallery to continue to expand its' program. This is the fourth location of the gallery, which was also previously located on West 26th Street for 5 years. The gallery was founded in 2003 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where it occupied a 225 square-foot space in a warehouse building for eight months before relocating to a larger exhibition space in Chelsea. In 2003 Roberta Smith of The New York Times referred to the gallery as "possibly the smallest white cube in the New York art world".

Monya Rowe Gallery focuses on exhibiting emerging artists working in all mediums, and aims to build and foster the careers of a small group of artists who are making significant and unique contributions to contemporary art by offering an important political and social discourse. Each year, we invite a guest artist or curator to organize an exhibition. Past "curators" have included Nayland Blake, Jose Lerma and Amy Sillman.
