London dealer opens showroom in New York

The 64th Street space will not be used for public exhibitions though

Simon Lee

The British contemporary art dealer Simon Lee (below) is opening an office and a showroom in New York. “A number of our artists are based in New York or not far from the city, so this is a good opportunity to be connected to them, to help them manage their shows in Europe and to service our clients there," Lee says.

The showroom, on 64th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues, will not be used for public exhibitions, Lee adds. Instead, art fresh from the studios of the New York-based artists with whom the gallery works, including Mel Bochner, Sherrie Levine, Christopher Wool, Alex Hubbard and Valerie Snobeck, could be displayed there before it goes on public view in London or in the gallery’s outpost in Hong Kong.
