1969 GalleryNew York

Founded in September 2016, 1969 is a contemporary art gallery, with two gallery spaces in Manhattan’s Lower East Side and Tribeca neighborhoods. Through solo / group / external exhibitions and art fair presentations, the Gallery has cultivated the careers of its seven represented artists and a broader community of artists primarily devoted to painting. Our independently curated exhibitions also expand our audience by exhibiting all different forms of art from artists worldwide.

During the past six-and-a-half years, we have organized over fifty exhibitions and participated in twelve art fairs. In addition to this we published five books and catalogs and co-published one ‘zine. (Our 2023 goal is to publish more critical writing about artists and exhibitions at 1969). Our gallery roster includes members of the LGBTQ and communities of color, including one Latinx artist and one gender non-binary artist. 

A highlight of our recent accomplishments include: a residency program at our original LES gallery space and placement of our artists’ works into museum and institutional collections including ICA Miami, Denver Art Museum, The High Museum (Atlanta, GA), Whitney Museum of American Art (NYC), The Cleveland Museum of Art (Ohio) and The Columbus Museum of Contemporary Art (Ohio).
