Nicola Vassell Opens Art Gallery in Chelsea


From the New York Times

At a moment when equity and diversity have become paramount in the art world, Nicola Vassell, a former director of both the Pace and Deitch Projects galleries in Manhattan, on Thursday will open her own exhibition space on Tenth Avenue, planting her flag as a rare contemporary art gallery owned by a Black woman in the heart of Chelsea.

“It’s time for a Black-owned gallery to inhabit the art world in New York in a really strong, dynamic way,” said Vassell, 42, standing in the space the other day, before the furniture had arrived. “It’s great to have landed in Chelsea.”
