Bureau just moved from 127 Henry Street

On its face, a floral shop beside a catering hall seemed a great match. Like peas and carrots, as Forest Gump would say. Nevertheless, Elizabeth Ryan Floral Design vacated 178 Norfolk Street exactly two years ago, and the space remained a rental void. As of yesterday, however, it’s now home to a veteran of the Lower East Side gallery district. Six-year-old showroom, Bureau, just moved from its Henry Street headquarters to this larger locale.

The upgraded facility debuted yesterday at 178 Norfolk with a seemingly unconventional Sunday night launch party. The inaugural exhibition is a solo show highlighting the artwork of Tom Holmes. Dubbed “Piss Yellow/Bars and Stars,” the installation includes “large-scale painting and sculpture the show will feature exuberant pop references mixed with painterly abstraction and stoic minimalism, unified by the over-arching motif of funerary form.”
