NYC pushes limits. It's a city where cultural effervescence meets urban chaos.
In Manhattan, SoHo is a curious example of this. International brands, art galleries, and countless other curious spots all come together to compose one of the city's most interesting districts.
That was where Melissa found its ideal habitat. Behind the façade of a traditional NYC building, art meets fashion in an environment thought up by designer Muti Randolph.
It's a space made to change, to receive exhibitions, installations and guest artists. I have sought, within the characteristics of the spaces and the city, to create fixed elements that serve as a support for art.
Our first official presence on North American soil, Galleria Melissa NY opened its doors in 2012. In 2017 it changed addresses and was reinaugurated with the exhibition "The Future of Her" from artists Sam Cannon and Signe Pierce. Curatorship was done by Kelsey and Remy Bennett.
