Stephen Friedman Gallery announces New York location

54 Franklin Street, New York

Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to announce an expansion to the United States for its first gallery outside the UK. It will open at 54 Franklin Street in Tribeca, New York in late autumn 2023. 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. 

Stephen Friedman said: “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.”

Alissa Friedman, a 30-year New York gallery veteran has been appointed Senior Director, New York. Friedman has worked with both Christie’s and several of New York’s blue-chip galleries before spending 15 years as Senior Director and Partner at Salon 94, later consulting with LGDR after Salon 94’s merger.  Known for managing artists including Huma Bhabha and Marilyn Minter, she directed sales, museum acquisitions and commissions, and produced publications and limited editions.

After 28 years at its current home on Old Burlington Street in Mayfair in London, the gallery will also expand and relocate its London base to neighbouring Cork Street, Mayfair in early autumn 2023.  Stephen Friedman adds: “This year is hugely significant for the gallery. As well as opening in New York, we are expanding our London gallery and sculpture garden, and relocating to Cork Street around the corner. I am as committed to my team as I am to our artists, and these new galleries are intended to give us all more space to flourish. I am passionate about making bold moves to support the gallery’s continued growth and success.” 

The gallery recently announced representation of New York-based abstract painter Pam Glick, who will be the subject of two solo presentations curated by Matthew Higgs, Director of White Columns, at the Independent and Frieze art fairs in New York this month.
