Stephen Friedman Gallery expands to New York

Stephen Friedman Gallery expands to New York opening its first gallery space in the United States at 54 Franklin Street in Tribeca, in late autumn 2023. This follows on from its announcement earlier in the year that it will be moving its London gallery to the former space of Saatchi Yates on Cork Street.

Located in the historic district, the site dates from 1891 and features a Romanesque Revival façade, including the neighbourhood’s ubiquitous cast iron storefront and original glass frontage. The gallery will be designed by Trimble Architecture

It feels like the right moment for us to be in New York. The last 28 years have led us to this point, but it was in recent times of reflection and in conversations with our artists that I felt inspired to go ahead with opening a gallery here. I have always loved Tribeca, because for me it’s the epitome of New York. And now with its thriving art scene, there is a palpable sense of community here which is integral to how our gallery fits and functions. World-class art is found in characterful surroundings – and with beautiful architecture, great restaurants, and boutiques, it’s a real destination for visitors and we’re excited to be part of it.
