New York, NY 10013
The Union Gallery is pleased to present our new 4,000 square foot space located at 359
Broadway. Still in Tribeca, we have moved a couple of blocks south of our original
space at 62 Walker Street.
The 359 Broadway building has a rich history. Originally built in 1853,
the space was once the studio and home of the great American photographer
Mathew Brady. The ground floor currently occupied by the Union Gallery was
originally Thompson's Saloon, frequented by literary and artistic
luminaries such as Walt Whitman. The building is also the former location
of many galleries and art events including Leo Koenig Gallery, Canada
Gallery, and studio of our founder John Peet. It is also well known as the
location of other experiments in contemporary art including the site for
the recently released documentary "We Live in Public."
The Union Gallery will offer many new programs and opportunities for
artists and curators alike. We remain open to curatorial submissions and
will continue to show a wide array of contemporary artists and work.
