122 Norfolk Street, new home of Brennan & Griffin

Some musical chairs on the local gallery front.

Back in February, the Laurel Gitlen Gallery terminated its tenure on the Lower East Side. The eponymous owner had operated the showroom at different locations during the seven-year run. The latest being 122 Norfolk Street.

So, after just over a month of vacancy, the storefront scored a new tenant. Brennan & Griffin, the four-year-old space at 55 Delancey Street, is moving here.

The space opens May 1 with an inaugural exhibition by Naotaka Hiro.

Brennan & Griffin debuted at 55 Delancey Street back in 2012. It evolved from a likeminded Los Angeles gallery called Sister that functioned in the early 2000s. Four years after its founding, the gallerists signed a new warehouse space in Red Hook.
