Luhring Augustine Bushwick
It was only a matter of time before a commercial gallery joined the DIY and artist-run art spaces in Bushwick, and earlier this month Crain's reported that top-tier Chelsea gallery Luhring Augustine had purchased a warehouse (pictured) at Knickerbocker Avenue and Ingraham Street. The 25-year-old gallery has been leasing storage space in Long Island City, but will be converting their newly acquired warehouse into a permanent place for the storing and displaying of art. BushwickBK reports that as much as a quarter of the 10,000-square-foot space could be turned into a gallery space, although whether this would be publicly accessible or exclusively for potential clients remains to be seen. Still, it was only a matter of time before Bushwick's increasingly ambitious and polished, Manhattan-style exhibitions were being put on by actual Manhattan galleries moving to the area. Bushwick is the new Chelsea? Yikes! (Hyperallergic)
