Monya Rowe Gallery was founded in 2003 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The gallery occupied a 225 square-foot space of a warehouse building for eight months before relocating to a larger exhibition space in Chelsea on West 26th Street. We focus on exhibiting emerging artists working in all mediums, and aim to build and foster the careers of a small group of artists. The gallery has achieved wide acclaim through exhibiting and introducing young artists who are making significant and unique contributions to contemporary art by offering an important political and social discourse. Each year, we invite a guest artist or curator to organize an exhibition. Past "curators" have included Nayland Blake, Jose Lerma and Amy Sillman. The gallery does not follow trends, allowing for unique and edgy exhibitions. To improve accessibility, in November 2008, we relocated to West 22nd Street, where we will continue to exhibit challenging exhibitions in an intimate atmosphere.
