Canada Gallery and Marlborough Chelsea Announce Inaugural Exhibits on Broome

We’ve said it before – Broome Street between Chrystie and the Bowery is a gallery district unto itself. The commercial businesses on the block are slowly passing the torch to new showrooms. Within the last year alone, both P! Gallery and Nicelle Beauchene/Jack Hanley set up shop, and nearby newcomer Canada revealed its intentions for moving here.

It was earlier this spring when the two-story plywood shed materialized at 333 Broome Street, previously occupied by a print shop. Learning of its closure, the Canada Gallery decided to relocate here after its own lease expired at 55 Chrystie Street (the former Beastie Boys home) in the summer of 2012. The upgrade allowed for street access, 4,200 square-feet of space, and “industrial architecture.” It’ll open September 13 with an exhibition by Joanna Malinowska.

Canada represents indie artists including Devendra Banhart, Joe Bradley, Xylor Jane and Joanna Malinowska.

Sitting beside Canada, though, is another new showroom. You see, co-founder and director Phil Grauer couldn’t afford the 10-year lease alone, so he roped in a subletter for the adjacent 331 Broome – Marlborough Chelsea. This smaller outpost, which opens September 8, will feature lesser known artists on the up-and-up. Its maiden installation is called “Pizza Time,” and explores the art behind the city’s culinary treasure.
