On the heels of the announcement that Gagosian Gallery and John Berggruen Gallery will both open new spaces directly across from the much anticipated SFMoMA renovation, Chelsea stalwarts Anton Kern and Andrew Kreps have announced that they’re collaborating on a large temporary space, also in the city by the bay.
The two galleries will open an exhibition on April 28 under the moniker Anton Kern/Andrew Kreps Gallery inside the Minnesota Street Project: a real estate endeavor that will house artist studios and gallery spaces. The 100,000 square foot building is located at 1275 Minnesota Street in the historic Dogpatch district of San Francisco.
The SF MoMA, which has been under renovation since mid-2013, is scheduled to reopen on May 14 and will feature 235,000 square feet of new gallery space, as well as a distinctive, light-filled atrium. Many galleries and arts professionals are being wooed to the city thanks to its relatively untapped ocean of tech industry money.
The Kern/Kreps exhibition will feature works from both gallery rosters, including luminaries like Mark Grotjahn, Anne Collier and Roe Ethridge, and will stay on view through May 21.
