‘Front Room Gallery’ Relocates from Williamsburg to Former Barzinho Space on Hester Street
Brazilian eatery, Barzinho, shuttered back in November after a four-year run at 48 Hester Street. This had been the second incarnation of the restaurant; the first was in Tribeca. A few short months (and some remodeling) later, its replacement just emerged.
You guessed it – another gallery.
The Front Room Gallery relocated from Williamsburg and opened on Hester Street a few days ago. Its first exhibit is aptly called “Rotating Moon,” a video projection by Thomas Broadbent animating the spinning moon on the back wall.
Founded in 1999, the Front Room Gallery is “dedicated to exhibiting artwork by emerging and mid-career artists with a concentration on photography, conceptual art, video, audio art, and installation.”
