Owen James Gallery is a contemporary art gallery focusing on emerging and mid-career artists from an international perspective. Through intrepid research, exploration, and critical curation the gallery strives to present a balance of perspectives, methods and genders.
The space aims to be a hub for the increasingly global scope of the contemporary art market, and to compare and contrast concurrent contexts, methods and narratives in art practices that span it. The gallery is a showcase for the interweaving histories of America, Asia and Europe, with a special focus on Southeast Asia. In addition to exhibitions, we will host a full interactive program of topical film screenings, lectures and publications.
Our gallery opened its doors in September 2014, in the historic Pencil Factory in Greenpoint Brooklyn, joining a diverse array of artist studios, designers, wood craftsmen, vintage furniture salons and internet projects. The building resides in the Eberhard Faber Pencil Company Historic District.
In January 2018 the gallery moved to a new location, where it now share exhibition space and offices with Brooke Alexander Gallery at 59 Wooster Street (2nd floor) in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.
