Following news of plans to open a San Francisco outpost, Burning in Water gallery has once again expanded its operation, this time in New York, where it has been based since it opened in 2015. The gallery announced today that it will inaugurate two more spaces in New York shortly, both of them located in the city’s Chelsea neighborhood, at 507 West 27th Street.
The new gallery spaces will be a block away from Burning in Water’s 10th Avenue gallery, and will add more than 5,000 square feet of exhibition space. They are part of the freshly inaugurated High Line Nine building, which was designed by the firm Studio MDA with galleries in mind. (Burning in Water’s two new spaces will be separated by those of other galleries also located within the building.)
The first show held at West 27th Street, next door to Kasmin gallery’s soon-to-open fourth gallery space, will be a Jesse Krimes solo outing feature new sculptures, installations, and mobiles by the Philadelphia-based artist. That exhibition, which will span both new spaces, kicks off on September 13.
Burning in Water first opened in 2015 in New York, and has since gone on to show such artists as Valerie Hegarty, Borinquen Gallo, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Elizabeth Catlett, and Serge Attukwei Clottey.
