Salon 94’s second location
2007 — Present
Salon 94 Freemans in Freemans Alley serves as the gallery’s downtown outpost. Salon 94 Freemans was opened in 2007, five years after the inception of Salon 94. For 10 years, Salon 94 Freemans was accompanied by Salon 94 Bowery, just around the corner next to The New Museum, until spring 2020.
A raw and intimate space, Salon 94 Freemans has been the venue for many of the galleries most memorable and important exhibitions, and more recently, art fair presentations. Salon 94 Freemans has housed several major solo and group exhibitions including Marilyn Minter’s exhibition Green Pink Caviar in the summer of 2009, a show of paintings presented concurrently with a video of the same name, marking Minter's directorial debut. In 2011, project artists Kara Hamilton, Ella Kruglyanskaya, and Lynda Benglis has solo presentations at Freemans and in 2012 fashion designer Duro Oluwu curated Material – a show combining fashion, accessories, and a selection of vintage and contemporary photography, textiles, contemporary art, furniture, music, books and objets trouvés. Two years later, Oluwu curated the second installment of the exhibition, More Material at Salon 94 Bowery. In 2015, Gordon Parks’s key body of work, Segregation Story, presented the photographs from Parks’s photo-essay for Life magazine from 1956.
