Artists Announced for Debut of Katz’s Deli Gallery ‘Space’

Since 203 East Houston hasn’t been able to hold down a steady tenant in a couple years, its neighbor took it over. Katz’s Deli is turning the adjacent real estate into a pop-up gallery and merch shop called “The Space,” predominantly dedicated to deli-inspired art. The gate is amidst a mural makeover, and new awning was just affixed to the storefront. However, they kept the arrow neon sign from the recently-vacated Tim Horton’s.

Fifth-generation owner Jake Dell told us earlier this month that Katz’s will introduce a new roster of artists each month to decorate the store. A tribute to the neighborhood, if you will. The first cycle in the series debuts on October 22 (with launch party, 7pm) and includes artwork from Hanksy, Rich Tu, Baron Von Fancy, Kenzo Minami, and HYP-INC; there will be music by G Lee and Robert Lux.

It’s almost like a page torn from the playbook of the dearly departed Max Fish.
