Yes, there are too many galleries on the Lower East Side. But, really, what’s one more, right?
Lyles & King is one of the latest entrants to the scene, scooping up the long-vacant cellar space at 106 Forsyth Street. The new 1,500 square-foot showroom – forged by the collective mind of Isaac Lyles and journalist wife Alexandra King-Lyles – debuted during the NADA art fair last month. Its inaugural installation featured Macgregor Harp and Chris Hood.
Those readers keeping score at home may recognize 106 Forsyth as the former address of Mexicue. The truck-to-store restaurant ditched its roots in April 2014 to open a string of midtown locations. After its abandonment, the store sat vacant for the interim year.
