Monya Rowe opened her first 200 square-foot space on the south side of Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2003. Roberta Smith of The New York Times called it "possibly the smallest white cube in the New York art world". After just 8 months in Brooklyn the gallery relocated to Chelsea, Manhattan for 10 years. In 2013, the gallery moved to Orchard Street on the Lower East Side where it was located for 2 years after which the gallery operated in Florida for 2 years. In 2018, the gallery relocated back to New York and is currently situated in the Flower/Fur District (also known as East Chelsea) of Manhattan in a former factory building used for fur storage and manufacturing.
Monya Rowe Gallery focuses on exhibiting emerging artists who are making unique and significant contributions to contemporary art.
The gallery has had the pleasure to exhibit many up-and-coming artists, often giving them their first New York exhibition. The list includes Larissa Bates, Angela Dufresne, Josephine Halvorson, Vera Iliatova, Jacolby Satterwhite, Devin Troy Strother and Ann Toebbe, among many others. Guest curators have included Nayland Blake, Amy Sillman, Jose Lerma and the filmmaker Paul Schrader.
