Hal Bromm

Gallery in The Lower Manhattan area

Add this to my venues

Tribeca’s first contemporary art gallery was founded by Hal Bromm in 1975.

The gallery staged an exhibition in an unfinished space at 114 Franklin Street in 1976.​​​​​​​​​​​​

In 1977, Hal Bromm Gallery relocated to 90 West Broadway, an imposing 1895 building designed by Harding & Gooch, at Chambers Street. The gallery’s early “new talent” shows introduced Keith Haring (1981), David Salle, Robert Longo, and others to appreciative collectors long before they became well-known.

Hal Bromm organized exhibitions of several up and coming East Village artists, including David Wojnarowicz, Mike Bidlo, Russell Sharon, Luis Frangella, and Judy Glantzman, at a second gallery space he had opened at Avenue A and East 11th Street in the East Village.

“Climbing”, a major group exhibition of leading East Village artists, was organized at the gallery’s Tribeca space in 1984. The benchmark exhibition served as an introduction to the larger public of the energy and depth of talent surfacing in the East Village.

For the gallery’s 30th Anniversary, four important artists: Carlos Alfonzo, Luis Frangella, Keith Haring and David Wojnarowicz, all of whom died of AIDS, were honored in a group exhibition.
