Modern Art gallery will open a second space this October in London’s East End neighborhood. The second space’s address will be Vyner Street E2, putting it within walking distance of the Approach and the former site of Vilma Gold, which shuttered this past spring. With its new space, Modern Art now has 6,000 additional square feet of real estate.
“For some time, I have been looking for a second space that would allow the gallery to program multiple shows at one time, to give scope to bring new artists into the gallery, as well as to work more spontaneously when the opportunity arises,” Stuart Shave, the owner of Modern Art, told ARTnews by email.
The first show at Modern Art will be a Josh Kline solo show titled “Civil War,” which will pick up where his “Unemployment” series—on view last year at New York’s 47 Canal gallery—left off. (As of last year, Kline is represented by Modern Art in London as well as 47 Canal.) Kline’s exhibition will open on October 3 and will be followed by a David Noonan exhibition.
