The Blooming Tribeca Art Scene + View Our Inclusive Gallery Map

The Untitled Magazine

There has been a lot of buzz the last few weeks in the press and otherwise revolving around Tribeca as the new art world destination. From The New York Times article “TriBeCa, the New Art Stroll” by Will Heinrich to Jerry Saltz’s article in Vulture“The Return of the Tribeca Art Scene” and the WSJ’s “Art Galleries Brush Off Chelsea for Tribeca” there is a lot of commotion about the amount of galleries flocking south from the much revered and established art scene in Chelsea. While the growing Tribeca art scene may come as news to some, Tribeca inhabitants have watched it grow over the last few years with a number of galleries that have opened in the area since 2013, including PostmastersBartolomiAlexander and Bonin, and The Untitled Space among others. For Tribeca locals the scene has been growing steadily for years and has been celebrated every few months since 2016 with initiatives such as Tribeca Art & Culture Night, which features 20 – 30 Tribeca galleries every few months for its evening art walks, tours, exhibits and events. Of course it wasn’t until the switch was flipped on September 6th when 5 galleries opened within a few blocks radius in North Tribeca that the rest of the art world woke up to what was happening south of Canal Street and it hit “breaking news”. It goes without saying that the simultaneous openings of 5 art galleries, many of which were relocating from Chelsea (including Canada, Monica King, James Cohan, Andrew Krep, and Chart galleries) all on the same night is sure to cause a stir. The streets were flooded with people buzzing and gallery hopping from one opening to the other, eyes wide open with excitement that they were witnessing art history in the making.

 

For those of you who first ventured down to Tribeca on that fateful evening it may have seemed like an awakening and yes in many regards it was. One could call it a mass exodus from Chelsea, definitely unprecedented and almost intoxicating. Local artists and gallerists alike were thrilled with the announcement of even more galleries, including Chelsea mainstays such as P.P.O.W., had also announced an imminent move to the area by 2020. Bare from the restraints of the established, specific aesthetics, high demands, and increasing rent prices set by the Chelsea landlords, the reborn Tribeca art scene feels like a breath of fresh air to many in the art community.

Having earned her stripes at Pace gallery in Chelsea, Monica King is a notable gallerist that recently opened her own space in Tribeca. “It’s long been my intention to open a gallery space that encourages collectors from all walks of life to approach art with an unmistakable sense of curiosity,” she said to ArtNet, adding: “My vision celebrates the vital contribution that contemporary art brings to our collective society and to each of our individual souls.” Other additions to this renaissance scene include Chart gallery which opened with breakthrough artist Shona McAndrew. McAndrew was a favorite at Spring/Break Art Show in 2018 with her figurative paper mache sculptures of life-sized humans and sculptures of daily life mundanities such as nail polish, tampons, shoes, candy wrappers, magazines and more.
