Lucas Zallmann’s pop-up “psychic refrigerators” in some ways predicted the future of 57 Orchard Street. The arrival of yet another in the crowded gallery
refugee scene of lower Orchard Street. This latest entrant, a familiar face.
Pablo’s Birthday, founded in 2002 by artist Arne Zimmermann to showcase up-and-comers, recently traversed neighborhoods to settle in the three-story 57 Orchard. The twelve-year-old gallery was previously headquartered in Tribeca, and at one point, boasted a second locale on Cleveland Place. New neons now light up the spot.
Before Pablo’s Birthday and the pop-up exhibit, 57 Orchard housed the artist workspace of Richard Art Hambleton until his eviction one year ago.
As previously reported, this particular address was included in the blockbuster portfolio sale of the iconic Pink Building, which changed hands last summer for $27 million. Expect a slew additional retail and residential changes at this corner.
