Profile

This 35,000-square-foot brick building formerly housed two museums. The ground floor was the temporary home of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, but now all three floors are occupied by the Chelsea Art Museum (CAM). CAM currently focuses on shows from international contemporary artists who might not be on the tip of most gallery-goers tongues, though names such as Yoko Ono make an appearance now and again. When the New Museum departed, CAM's permanent collection—which includes the archives of Jean Miotte and the abstract European school known as L'Informel, along with the works of American artists such as Joan Mitchell—went back on display. Its warehouse vastness, lack of crowds, and abundance of natural light provide an inviting setting for exhibitions that range from the erotic drawings of Spain's Cristobal Gabarron to the Targetti Light Art Collection.
