Since the gallery share program Condo was first launched in London in 2016 by Vanessa Carlos, the cofounder of the city’s Carlos/Ishikawa gallery, similar events have been started in Los Angeles, Munich, Warsaw, and Cologne and Düsseldorf. Condo has expanded, too, and it’s since held editions in New York, São Paulo, and Mexico City, with another planned for Shanghai. On its website Condo has revealed the participants in the inaugural Shanghai edition and the second New York edition, which are both set to open in the coming few weeks.
Per Condo’s format, at both cities, local galleries will turn over their spaces to visiting outfits from around the world. The host city’s galleries give over their space to their peers at a minimal cost—out-of-towner participants are expected only to pay installation fees and rent.
The New York edition, which is run by Simone Subal of Simone Subal Gallery and Nicole Russo of Chapter NY, features 21 local spaces hosting 26 visiting galleries. In a first for the program’s New York edition, a nonprofit—White Columns—is included. This year’s Condo New York goes from June 29 through July 27.
Condo’s first Shanghai edition is run by Lorraine Malingue, the cofounder of Hong Kong and Shanghai’s Edouard Malingue Gallery, and it will include 9 local outfits hosting 13 of their peers. It’s set to open on July 7 and run through August 26.
