New York University’s Grey Art Gallery has announced that they will move to a larger space in the East Village. The new facility—designed by Ennead Architects—will highlight the importance of the arts on campus and reshape the visitor experience for all audiences.
The design will include three galleries—expanding the ground-floor space by 40%— enhanced collection facilities for the NYU Art Collection, and the creation of a study center.
“Ennead has a long relationship with NYU which we are proud to continue with this important project,” said Ennead Architects Partner Molly McGowan AIA. “As a cultural institution, the Grey Art Gallery has enormous reach and we are excited to deliver a design that will further open the gallery to new audiences and facilitate new experiences.”
“With its impressive curation and collection, the Grey Art Gallery has always had a presence in the art world that far exceeds its size. The newly designed space, significantly larger and more accessible, will be commensurate with their vision and more supportive of their mission. It will meaningfully engage not only with NYU’s arts programs in the building but the surrounding arts community,” said designer Richard Olcott FAIA, Partner at Ennead Architects.
When the new space at 18 Cooper Square in New York opens in 2024, it will be known as the Grey Art Museum. Learn more here.
