Top 5 Chelsea Galleries

David Zwirner  

Barbara Gladstone Gallery
515 W. 24th St., nr. Tenth Ave.; 212-206-9300.
Bankable names like Anish Kapoor and Sarah Lucas in a space as big as their reputations.

David Zwirner
525 W. 19th St., nr. Tenth Ave.; 212-727-2070.
International talent that’s unafraid of pushing the envelope; think Chris Ofili (an artist whose work has incorporated elephant dung) and Lisa Yuskavage (fleshy portraits of women).

Gagosian Gallery
522 W. 21st St., nr. Tenth Ave.; 212-741-1717.
A show at any of Gagosian's influential galleries—six in New York, two in London, and one each in Paris and Rome—is the flashing neon announcement that an artist has made it.

Matthew Marks
523 W. 24th St., nr. Tenth Ave.; 212-243-0200.
Andreas Gursky, Peter Hujar, and Nan Goldin made this gallery one to watch; new shows from old masters like Ellsworth Kelly and Willem de Kooning have kept it that way.

Zach Feuer Gallery
530 W. 24th St., nr. Eleventh Ave.; 212-989-7700.
The scene’s risk-taking, young powerhouse displays emerging names like Jules de Balincourt and Dana Schutz.
