By day this private gallery, just 7.6 metres wide by 30.5 metres deep, is as tough as any in the Bowery. A slender milled glass fortress, it has the air of fine steel. By night its transparency shines through, not least in the moving room, a 6 by 3 metre gallery space which can be parked at any of the four floors of galleries above the entrance level. In less able hands this site could have produced a curator’s nightmare. Instead this mature, polished piece of work is a curator’s dream.
