Founded in Tribeca in 1998, Hostler Burrows is recognized as New York’s leading gallery in mid-twentieth century Nordic design. Focused on the integrity and superb craftsmanship of mid-century design, Hostler Burrows was the first gallery in the U.S. to exhibit exceptional work by the artists and designers Axel Salto, Berndt Friberg, Josef Frank and Finn Juhl. These artists are now prevalent in the global marketplace and remain relevant in the midst of the current trends of the contemporary art and design world.
Hostler Burrows’ operations have since moved to 51 East 10th Street and its program has expanded to include contemporary works by international artists, with a specific commitment to the representation of women in the field. Hostler Burrows exclusively represents experimental ceramic sculptors Kristina Riska and Maren Kloppmann. In addition to these contemporary artists, Hostler Burrows represents the estate of Richard Filipowski, a member of the New Bauhaus and protegée of Moholy-Nagy.
Now, Hostler Burrows showcases both the vintage and contemporary in an innovative new program that promotes the seamless integration of these conceivably disparate forms. The gallery has worked to emphasize the relationship between the past and present, finding a continuous thread between the two, particularly within the area of studio ceramic art.
