Earlier this week, Paul Lam of Locco Ritoro Gallery surprised many people by announcing that he would be closing the gallery. In its two years in the Harrison Street SoWa complex, Locco Ritoro has shown a wide variety of exciting and engaging work, with no signs of stopping. "We received an [...] offer this summer to sell the gallery. It was too good to pass on so we've accepted and just closed on the deal," Lam said in an email to Big RED & Shiny.
William Kerr, of Gallery XIV, expressed his excitement for he new venture, and promised that "Gallery XIV aspires to continue the precedent left by Locco Ritoro - pushing the envelope and presenting exhibitions that challenge and raise the bar."
The first artist on Gallery XIV's schedule: Marcus Jansen
