Now that the retail units in 143 Ludlow Street are sufficiently upgraded to luxury level, it’s time to fill the space. At least temporarily.
As of yesterday afternoon, the north storefront at 143 Ludlow – which at one point housed Lindsay Thornburg’s boutique – is now a pop-up showroom for the Miami-based Sammer Gallery. They are “dedicated to the promotion of Latin American Constructivism and concrete art.” The first exhibit is called “Wheels and Cylinders,” and features the solo work of Ricardo Pascale.
“We are extremely excited about the exhibition and with the new location. This is almost a continuation of the exhibition “New Economy – Wheels and Cylinders” held in Montevideo, Uruguay and curated by Prof. Alicia Haber” said Ignacio Pedronzo, Sammer Gallery Miami director. “Although the costs associated to this show are high due to the dimensions and weight of the pieces, we believe that showing Pascale’s work to the public here in New York is really worthwhile, and the Lower East Side is the perfect location.”
Remember that controversial land owner Samy Mahfar allegedly put the businesses and residents of this building through hell the last couple years. Mahfar sits on the board of the Lower East Side BID. Please tell us how that’s good for the community.
