547 W. 25th St., New York, NY 10001, United States

Originally founded in a small garage by co-owners John Cheim and Howard Read, this acclaimed gallery is now a 6,000-square-foot Chelsea landmark representing some of the biggest names in 20th-century art. Skylights and 16-foot ceilings create an ideal backdrop for the paintings, installations, sculpture, and photography of such renowned artists as Diane Arbus, Louise Bourgeois, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Jack Pierson. The gallery mounts an average of five exhibitions each year, including single-artist shows and occasional group exhibitions focused on a particular theme, such as the skeleton depicted in artwork or women’s portrayal of the female form.
