Two Trees Management, the real estate management firm is relocating art galleries on the second floor of 111 Front Street to other gallery spaces in Dumbo, according to Hyperallergic.com.
From the article:
“The galleries will take over retail spaces on Plymouth Street, and we are converting the former Galapagos building,” Lisa Kim, the director of cultural affairs at Two Trees, told Hyperallergic. “This street-level presence will be a big move for the galleries, and we’re excited to be able to make this happen.”
Art spaces currently located in 111 Front Street include Klompching Gallery, Stephen Romano Gallery, Kunsthalle Projects, and Masters Projects. Among those making the move to the new locations will be the Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC), which has had offices and an exhibition space at 111 Front Street for a decade; United Photo Industries, which also organizes Photoville and outdoor exhibitions of photography; the feminist nonprofit A.I.R. Gallery, which will take up residence at 155 Plymouth Street; and Minus Space, which moved to Dumbo from Gowanus in 2011.
The gallery owners Hyperallergic contacted had “nothing but praise for their landlord”, which has supported the arts since they began redeveloping Dumbo in the 1990s.
