Pablo Picasso once said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” As James Cohan Gallery proves, that could not be further from the truth. Located in New York City, this art gallery boasts a diverse selection of inspiring art created by some of the most talented contemporary artists. Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of visiting this amazing place and now want to tell you more about it.
James Cohan — NYC Gallery with Inspiring Art
The first James Cohan Gallery was opened in September 1999 on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The opening was marked by a special exhibition featuring early photo-pieces by Gilbert & George. Since then, the gallery has been exhibiting meaningful and inspiring art created by both emerging and well-established artists. In October 2018, James Cohan expanded to the second location in New York, this time in Tribeca. Both spaces hold exhibitions of international acclaim.
James Cohan represents many contemporary talents, including Kathy Butterly, Josiah McElheny, Matthew Ritchie, Jordan Nassar, Firelei Báez, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, and Mernet Larsen, among others. Each work at the gallery is an original creation full of deep meaning, which makes this place one of the best in New York for art lovers. James Cohan also participates in various art fairs. In particular, this year, the gallery had a gorgeous series of art presentations at the online edition of Frieze New York (May 6-15), Dallas Art Fair Online (April 14-23), The Armory Show (March 5-8), ADAA’s The Art Show (February 27 – March 1), and FOG Design+Art (January 16-19).
At Fine Art Shippers, we love visiting James Cohan. This gallery offers an outstanding selection of contemporary art for any taste. Check this out by visiting the online exhibition “A Lotus in a Sea of Fire” by the Vietnamese-born artist and filmmaker Tuan Andrew Nguyen. Very recommended!
