NEW YORK, JUL. 2015
*Our previous article has been updated
New York's Freight + Volume gallery is not closing but relocating in fall 2015. They currently run an uptown space on Lexington called Arts and Leisure and will be appearing in Market Art + Design launching in July of 2015 as the evolution of Art Market Hamptons.
Here is the update from F + V that we missed:
"After a dozen memorable years in Chelsea, Freight + Volume has decided to relocate and will re-open this fall with a dynamic new stand-alone space in a vibrant neighborhood, which will allow the artists in our program to continue to have a strong voice and edgy presence in the New York art world - and at large. We will focus on building their careers while also strengthening our art fair presence here and abroad. We will promote and encourage conversations about the inherent value of the work rather than just its investment value. Our new location will allow us to serve both our artists and clients more completely, and we look forward to welcoming you to this new chapter for the gallery. Stay tuned for further details."
"During this transition period, please visit our uptown project space, Arts+Leisure, at 1571 Lexington Ave between 100th and 101st, and follow our exhibition program there at: www.artsandleisure.net." WM
