Change continues apace on New York’s Lower East Side. The latest shift in that fast-evolving Manhattan district concerns the neighborhood mainstay Thierry Goldberg, which will inaugurate a new gallery location at 109 Norfolk Street on July 20 with a group show.
The new spot, which has 2,500 square feet of space across two floors designed by Eric Bunge and Mimi Hoang of nArchitects, is just north of Delancey Street and just three doors up from its previous home at 103 Norfolk, which it closed at the end of last year. In the intervening time, Thierry Goldberg ran a temporary space in Miami for six months, presenting shows by Tschabalala Self and David Shrobe as well as group exhibitions. (The gallery will do a solo booth with Self at Miami Basel in December.)
Claire Lemetais and Ron Segev founded the gallery in 2007 at 5 Rivington St., which in 1983 Richard Prince used to show his famed Spiritual America photograph. In 2011, the gallery moved to Norfolk Street. Over the years, it has done shows with Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Maya Bloch, Keren Cytter, and Naama Tsabar.
