Located two doors down from the New Museum, Salon 94 Bowery is another downtown incarnation of the Upper East Side gallery started by dealer Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn and husband Nicolas Rohatyn. In keeping with the gritty surroundings, the space has been left in its raw state, with a handsome tin ceiling and walls exposing years of layered paint jobs.
Since its creation in 2002, the mission of Salon 94 has grown from exhibiting special projects by emerging and renowned artists alike in the home of Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn to representing artists such as Marilyn Minter, Lorna Simpson, Jon Kessler and Takeshi Murata.
A satellite exhibition space debuted in September 2007 with sculptural work by Huma Bhabha. In 2010, a third exhibition space opened on the Bowery with a show of Richard Prince’s T-Shirt paintings. Located steps from The New Museum in New York’s Lower East Side, both galleries strive to provide more accessibility to visitors to the developing downtown art scene.
