Modernism Gallery

The design of Modernism Gallery honors its existing industrial structure and the origins of the storied gallery itself. A new façade was inspired by the lithographs of El Lissitsky, one of the first artists to be shown in the gallery’s 30-year history. The interior creates a complementary dialogue between original board-formed concrete walls and wood roof structure, and new crisp, white modern planes that define new surfaces for displaying art.
