Jim Kempner Fine Art

Chelsea is a sea of white box galleries, one building looking like the next since it was formerly all warehouses. It is easy to lose your bearings- unless of course you are on the corner of 10th Avenue and 23rd Street. Designed by architects Smith & Thompson, the Jim Kempner Fine Arts building echoes the artists it shows- namely Richard Serra’s signature raw Cor-ten steel, which lines the building’s façade and encapsulates a serene sculpture garden. The building itself has received world wide acclaim, and the gallery itself shows important artists such as John Baldessari, Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, Maurizio Cattelan, Francesco Clemente, Chuch Close, Donald Judd…the list goes on and on.
