On November 6, Maxwell Davidson Gallery and Davidson Contemporary open their new bi-level Chelsea gallery. Located on the top two floors of 521 West 26th street, the new space - designed by Murdock Solon Architects - boasts features unique to the gallery, and unmatched in New York.

The ninth floor is a classic gallery, but one filled with natural light from a skylight 20 feet above. Up the staircase to the rooftop gallery, visitors are greeted by a panoramic view: the Hudson River, the New York skyline, and the High Line. Work will be displayed both inside the glass-enclosed penthouse gallery, as well as outside on two 1200-square foot sculpture decks. Each terrace has been specially designed and constructed to display large-scale outdoor sculptures, both mobile and stabile.

Here, Maxwell Davidson Gallery presents Contour: New Kinetic Sculpture, by Pedro S. de Movellàn. De Movellàn has created indoor and outdoor work for this exhibition. For over 20 years, de Movellàn has been one of the greatest contemporary kinetic sculptors in the world. His work will also be on view at the Vero Beach Museum of Art through January 4, 2015.

Please join us at our opening reception on Thursday, November 6, 4-9pm. For more information, please contact us at info@davidsongallery.com.
