Timothy Taylor Announces New Space in New York's Tribeca Neighbourhood
Early in 2023, Timothy Taylor will open a 6,000-square-foot space in Tribeca, replacing the Chelsea townhouse that was formerly the gallery's New York space.
Located in the vibrant Tribeca gallery district, the ground-floor space at 74 Leonard Street is similar in scale to Timothy Taylor’s flagship gallery in London. The larger size will allow the gallery to present expansive exhibitions with monumentally-scaled work, as well as multiple exhibitions simultaneously, and reflects the importance of New York as a hub for the gallery and its artists.
The New York-based architecture and design firm studioMDA, led by Markus Dochantschi, is completing a full renovation of the space that will maintain the character of the building, including its cast-iron columns, 15-foot ceilings, and original storefront. The final gallery will feature new exhibition spaces, skylights, viewing rooms, and offices. An authority on cultural buildings, studio MDA has worked extensively with art collectors, artists and gallerists to design more than a dozen art galleries, including Bortolami, Anton Kern, Andrew Kreps, Luhring Augustine, Lisson, PPOW, 303 Gallery, and the Faurschou Foundation.
'When we expanded to New York six years ago, it was an experiment, a way to explore how the gallery and our program could contribute to this vibrant art hub while still maintaining our identity. New York has exceeded our highest expectations—from the enthusiasm with which our artists and exhibitions have been received to the relationships that we have made and strengthened with collectors, curators, and artists alike. I am delighted that we now have a gallery space that can accommodate our ambitions for New York.' – Timothy Taylor
