Pierogi was founded in 1994 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and relocated to the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 2016.
Pierogi mounts monthly exhibitions featuring the work of emerging and mid-career artists in an eclectic range of media and style. The flat files are also an important aspect of Pierogi and began with the idea of making artwork available to a larger audience. They house portfolios of original works by 900+ artists. The traveling flat files have been exhibited in London, Vienna, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and elsewhere.
The BOILER, Pierogi’s satellite exhibition space opened in March 2009, is a more expansive space that allows us to mount large-scale sculpture, painting, and installation exhibitions. It is a former factory boiler room with 35-foot ceilings where we also hold performances, screenings, and other events.
