The Shin Gallery at 322 Grand St. is expanding. In a recent email, collector Hong Gyu Shin explained that he’s establishing the 66 Orchard Project space around the corner from the main gallery. The storefront was previously by Sheila’s Decorating, which moved to another space alongside Joe’s Fabrics at 102 Delancey St. Here’s an explanation of the new visual art venture:

66 Orchard Project is the Shin Gallery’s newly launched project space, intended as a location for experimentation and play. Designated to open January 2015, 66 Orchard Project is located within a building erected in the 1900’s, when Modernism had just begun its transformation of the European and North American artistic landscapes; this history has undoubtedly shaped our current ideas of artistic presentation, and we hope to continue down this path in a more contemporary manner. 66 Orchard Project is dedicated to fostering intuitive, engaging, and uncensored collaboration among artists of various generations and geographic locations. This space is all about spontaneous, clever, remarkable, and poetic exchanges, supported by the appearance of 66 Orchard itself. Prior to acquiring it, 66 Orchard was a fabric store. We have kept original finishes– the brick walls, wooden floors, ceilings, and exposed pipes, preferring to maintain its original spirit and history. Through the art exhibited here, we hope to cultivate a location for cross-cultural, inter-generational, and trans-historical conversation.

The first exhibition in the new space will feature works from the German artist, Martin Kippenberger. It opens Jan. 24. The Shin Gallery established a foothold on the Lower east Side with its original gallery in 2013.
