Chelsea

view-mapView Map

Most of Chelsea’s art galleries are found from about 20th to 27th streets, primarily between 10th and 11th avenues. The range of contemporary art on display includes almost every imaginable medium and style; if it's going on in the art world, it'll be in one of the 300 or so galleries here. While some of the small and midsize galleries have been squeezed uptown due to high rents, the big players in the art world are getting bigger. Giant standouts include the new five-story David Zwirner Gallery on 20th Street; Hauser & Wirth’s cavernous industrial space on 18th Street; the Robert Miller Gallery on 26th Street, a titan in the New York art world representing the likes of Patti Smith and Alice Neel, among others; and the galleries of Gagosian, Matthew Marks, and Pace (which has expanded to four galleries in this neighborhood).
