About ARTLAB78


ARTLAB78 is a new experimental exhibition space in NYC where invited artists are given the opportunity to show their work in an intimate setting to a selected audience composed of clients, critics, journalists, designer, and friends. ARTLAB78 will be 
  • a gallery space, as the work is for sale
  • a meeting place for the artist and audience, and
  • a center for dialogue. 
It will also serve as a short-term residence for an artist, if the artist is not living in New York City.  ARTLAB78 draws its inspiration from 
  • Alfred Stieglitz's galleries: 291, "Intimate Gallery, and " An American Place; 
  • Roy Neuberger and patrons like him who decided to help living artists; and 
  • Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney who trusted her own taste and provided exhibition opportunities for artists. 
It is located within a landmark Beaux Arts building designed by Henry Atterbury Smith that opened in 1909 as the Shively Sanitary Tenements, under the sponsorship of Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt.Laurence and Franck Neron-Bancel curate all exhibitions. Contact information:   Laurenceneronbancel@gmail.com
