The Brant Foundation New York opens in March 2019 with an exhibition of works by Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Located at 421 East 6th Street, The Brant Foundation’s New York space occupies a century-old building originally designed as a substation for Consolidated Edison. The building subsequently served as the home and studio of famed artist Walter De Maria from the mid-1980s until his death in 2013. Richard Gluckman of Gluckman Tang Architects renovated the former substation to create a 16,000-square-foot building that features 7,000 square feet of exhibition space arrayed across four floors. The space includes two new gardens adjacent to the structure and a landscaped roof terrace.
