Bloomberg market ace Katya Kazakina just shared on her Twitter feed that Kerry Schuss, purveyor of KS Art on Leonard Street in Tribeca, is moving into Lisa Cooley’s old space on Orchard Street. Mr. Schuss, the gallerist who represents Sonic Youth band mates Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon as well as skater-journalist and artist Jocko Weyland, will open his first show at the Lower East Side space on April 14 with an exhibition of Robert Moskowitz, a mid-career artist born in Brooklyn in 1935, who was influenced in his early career by Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. Mr. Schuss was not immediately available for comment.
“I am thrilled that we are able to stay in the Lower East Side, and even happier that my friend, Kerry Schuss, will be taking over our wonderful Orchard Street space,” Lisa Cooley stated on the Paddle8 blog. “The Lower East Side is the gallery neighborhood of our generation, without a doubt.”
