The newest gallery in the Lower East Side art scene in New York, Space 776 has been creating a space for a wide range of artists whose medium of work stretches from live multimedia performances to traditional oil painting. Founded in May 2013 in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Space 776 has accommodated local and international artists taking the work to international art fairs such as; Volta Basel, Art Miami, Affordable Art Fair, Asia Contemporary Art Show, and Art Busan. We opened a space in Seoul in 2019, to promote New York-based artists to the Asian market.
"The first art galleries on the Lower East Side opened around the turn of the millennium, and since then, the neighborhood has become a go-to destination for gallery-goers, much as Chelsea is, except that the spaces on the LES, built out of former storefronts and upstairs lofts, are more moderately scaled than what you’d find in Chelsea. They also tend to feature younger, edgier artists, some of whom are showing for the first time. Overall, the LES gallery scene has a relaxed, funky vibe that’s well worth experiencing. But before you go, be sure to check out our guide to the best art galleries on the Lower East Side!" —Howard Halle, Time Out NY, 2019
