MF Gallery first opened its doors in June 2003 in New York City’s Lower East Side. The gallery quickly became a meeting point for all kinds of underground artists and international collectors. Known for its wild opening parties, (Often featuring live music, zombie invasions, ten foot tall death metal robots, kegs and sheep brains.) and creative art shows, MF Gallery is now a staple of the underground art scene.

In 2009, MF Gallery opened a second location in Genova, Italy, introducing many of the best American artists to the Italian public and bringing some Italian artists back to the U.S. Also in 2009, the NYC gallery moved to a bigger space in Gowanus, Brooklyn. In addition to continuing to host cutting edge art shows, MF Gallery now has a full “Art Shop” featuring artist prints, t-shirts, art toys, comics, books, and more collectible items.

Thanks to all of MF Gallery’s great artists, collectors and friends, the first ten years of have been fantastic… Let’s hope for (at least) ten more! Cheers!

MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street, between Butler and Baltic Streets in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn, NY. Take the A or G to Hoyt/ Schermerhorn, the F or G to Bergen, or the R to Union.
