New York’s Kasmin gallery, the newly adopted name of the Paul Kasmin Gallery, revealed today that it will open a fourth space in the city’s Chelsea neighborhood. Located at 509 West 27th Street, the new gallery will open on October 11 with an exhibition of new work by Walton Ford and a presentation of three sculptures by Joel Shapiro.
Kasmin’s new space will be designed by StudioMDA, the New York–based firm that previously worked on two of the gallery’s other venues. Boasting 28 skylights, Kasmin’s latest space will feature a 5,000-square-foot outdoor exhibition area that will be visible to people walking along the High Line.
Paul Kasmin, the gallery’s founder, said in a statement, “The new gallery is the result of many years of discussion. Nearly all galleries in Chelsea are adapted industrial spaces, so the real ambition has been to create a purpose-built exhibition space with the sole intention of showing art at its very best and bringing the shows outside of the gallery walls.”
