New York’s Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery announced today in an email that it has expanded, adding exhibition space, a new glass storefront, and larger offices.

The Lower East Side gallery’s space, at 54 Ludlow Street, had previously been somewhat cramped. With Essex Flowers decamping from its tiny home next door, at 54.5 Ludlow Street, Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery was able to take over that space, and will now be able to host “multiple shows and larger exhibitions,” it said. (Essex Flowers moved to Chinatown in June.)

The gallery also stated that David Bers Architecture, which designed Isaac Mizrahi’s home in Greenwich Village, helped oversee the expansion. The gallery will now be 1,300 square feet, 750 square feet of which will be devoted to exhibition space.

Klaus will open its newly expanded space on September 9 with a show of new work by David Scanavino. This will be the third time Scanavino has had a show at Klaus von Nichtssagend since it was in Williamsburg, where the gallery was located from its founding in 2004 to early 2011.
