12 Jan Art Walk We LOVE (Meatpacking District)
Located in a garage, David Zwriner showcases artworks that are as innovative as the space. From past exhibitions such as Wolfgang Tillman’s PCR to Gordon Matta-Clark’s Energy & Abstraction, you’ll come curious and leave curious.

The renowned gallery Pace is a must while in The Meatpacking District. With a roster to boast, such as works by Chuck Close, Keith Sonnier, and Robert Irawin, they’ve worked hard to earn their respect in the gallery realm. We love their Roberto Matta exhibition featuring his works from the 1950s to 1960s.

Warehouses turned gallery spaces are the envy of the New York art world, putting Petzel on the frontline. The space feels always infinite at first, creating a transformative dialogue between the artworks and the interior. Their past exhibition featuring Keith Edmier’s series Regeneratrix is as probing as it is edifying. These monumental sculptures allude to a multiplicity of histories of the artist’s as they carry from room to room.

Zieher Smith & Horton
This industrial, airy space creates a beautiful juxtaposition between it and the artworks.

The exhibition, The Patients and the Doctors, from the estate of David Byrd and Peter Gallo includes manifestos, screenplays, poems, and drawings. Its eclecticism only further proves that Zieher Smith & Horton is on the cutting edge for galleries.
