Chelsea Gallery ‘Freight+Volume’ Relocates to Allen Street

Chelsea art gallery packs its bags for the Lower East Side, to a more “vibrant setting.” Yes, we’ve written (and you’ve read) the same version of this narrative a thousand times already. It’s getting pretty tired, honestly. Yet here we are; another day, another Chelsea transplant.

Earlier this month, Freight+Volume relocated from West 24th Street after a twelve-year residence. It now operates in the sliver storefront at 97 Allen Street, previously occupied by another short-lived showroom called TBD.

The inaugural installation is “Trees Breeze Green” by painter Maria Walker.

Here is some of the copy from the press release:

After a dozen memorable years in Chelsea, Freight+Volume has decided to relocate and will re-open on Saturday, October 10th in a dynamic new storefront space in the heart of a vibrant neighborhood, which will allow the artists in our program to continue to have a strong voice and edgy presence in the New York art world – and at large.

We will focus on building their careers while also strengthening our art fair presence here and abroad. We will promote and encourage conversations about the inherent value of the work rather than just its investment value. Our new location will allow us to serve both our artists and clients more completely, and we look forward to welcoming you to this new chapter for the gallery.

Freight+Volume also maintains an “uptown project space” called Arts+Leisure in Spanish Harlem.
