4 NYC Galleries These Art Fiends Always Scope Out

Stuff We Love 05/18/2017

Chen Chen and Kai Williams are designers of insanely cool, very functional objects like bulbous, bubblegum-colored planters and marble-slab lamps. But their unusual, way-surprising (in a great way) pieces could very much stand alone as sculpture, too—they’ve shown work at The Museum of Arts and Design and the Venice Architecture Biennale. So, yeah, these are exactly the dudes we want planning our next summer New York Sunday gallery hop, which is exactly what they’ve done here.

 

PATRICK PARRISH

“They have an amazing combination of contemporary design objects and vintage pieces, especially from the mid-century.” —Chen

 

“Upstairs is a gallery, but downstairs is an open storage space, like the visible storage at the Met or the Brooklyn Museum where you see everything that’s just on shelves. It’s a great place to get inspired about design. And you can touch everything.”—Kai

 

FISHER PARRISH

“Patrick and his gallery director, Zoe Fisher, just opened this new space in Bushwick. We participated in their inaugural show, which is a bunch of paperweights by over 100 artists.” —Chen

KATE WERBLE GALLERY

It’s an art gallery, but it’s very small and sort of strange. Last year, Anna Betbeze did a series of giant bathrobes that guests were allowed to throw on.”—Kai

 

Christopher Chiappa also did a series of 7,000 plaster fried eggs there in 2015 that was all over Instagram.”—Chen

 

 

SIGNAL

“One of the coolest things about this Brooklyn space is actually in the backyard, where a guy named Frank Traynor hosts the Perfect Nothing Catalog residency. He took this broken-down shack uses it as a shop to sell artists’ work.”—Chen
