16 East 55th Street, New York, NY 10022

On April 22, 2017, Anton Kern Gallery officially opened its doors at 16 East 55th Street. Designed by studioMDA, the six-story townhouse features three floors of exhibition space, with permanent installations by Martino Gamper and Jim Lambie. 


Built in the 1930s, 16 East 55th Street housed one of the first boutique hairdressers in New York, rumored to cater to the Roosevelt Family. The building remained as a hairdresser for many years prior to being split into a multiple occupancy building that housed the same antiques dealer for 40 years prior to Anton Kern Gallery’s occupancy. We look forward to welcoming you to our home, situated at the historic center of the New York art scene.
