Galerie Perrotin Moves to the Lower East Side

Galerie Perrotin is moving its New York gallery to 130 Orchard Street in the Lower East Side. Originally constructed in 1902, the building formerly served as a fabric factory in the 1940s and still has the painted signage on its façade. The American architecture firm Peterson Rich Office is slated to retrofit the space, which is due to open in the spring of 2017, a spokeswoman says.

Perrotin’s new 25,000 sq. ft gallery will be eight times the size of its current home. The gallery does not have details on its inaugural exhibitions for the move, however.

Since 2013, Perrotin has shared space in an Upper East Side townhouse with the Dominique Lévy gallery, which announced earlier this month its intention to take over all three floors of the building.
