DUMBO Art Galleries Making the Move to Street Level

DUMBO’s 111 Front Street Galleries are moving into new spaces at the end of the month and we’ve got a rundown of who’s going where. This move will bring the galleries to street level and make them more accessible to DUMBO’s art lovers & for First Thursday Gallery Walks.

Klompching Gallery, Masters Projects, Minus Space, and United Photo Industries will move into 16 Main Street (see rendering above), while A.I.R. and Stephen Romano Gallery will move into 155 and 145 Plymouth Street, respectively. Brooklyn Arts Council & Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue will also be moving into new office space in DUMBO.

These are all galleries with a history in DUMBO: Klompching has called DUMBO home for the last 7 years, and United Photo Industries started their operations as a popup in DUMBO 4 years ago. Minus Space moved here in 2011, expanding the curatorial project they started in Gowanus in 2003. AIR is a 40-year-old organization that came to DUMBO in 2008. Both Todd Masters, a longtime gallerist, and Stephen Romano, a longtime private dealer, opened their DUMBO locations in 2013 after falling in love with the neighborhood.

These 6 galleries will join Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street), Rabbithole Studio (33 Washington Street) and LAND Gallery (67 Front Street) in occupying ground level spaces around the neighborhood.

The moves are all expected to be completed by early summer and we will update as soon as they start opening. In the meantime, all of the galleries are still running shows at their 111 Front Street spaces through the end of the month. You should check in with each gallery to confirm their times and when they’ll be closing.
