Ortuzar Projects will triple its gallery space in Tribeca

After five years at 9 White Street in Tribeca, Ortuzar’s Projects will move to a new 10,000 square foot space next door that will allow the gallery to hold multiple exhibitions at once while maintaining its presence in Tribeca, New York fastest growing neighborhood for galleries.

Ortuzar Projects will open this fall at 5 White Street, designed by architectural firm Caplan Colaku, which recently designed the new location for the nonprofit artist space, also in Tribeca. Decades ago, in the 1980s, Artists Space was based at 5 White Street.

Ortuzar Projects’ first exhibition at the new site will be an exhibition of works by Ernie Barnes, curated by Derrais Carter. Last year at Frieze New York, amid a market frenzy for Barnes’ work that surprised many, Ortuzar Projects announced that he would co-represent the estate of the late American football player turned artist with Andrew Kreps, another Tribeca-based gallery.

Ales Ortuzar, a former associate of David Zwirner, opened his gallery in 2018 as part of a two-year project to introduce important 20th and 21st century artists to new audiences in the United States.

When Ortuzar Projects opened in Tribeca five years ago, the neighborhood was just beginning to experience the mass migration of art galleries to the area. Today, more and more galleries are expanding downtown or moving out of neighborhoods like Chelsea altogether. Galleries advertising moves to Tribeca include Timothy Taylor, Stephen Friedman, Marian Goodman and Alexander Grayand collector Lio Malca.
