Since 2000, Todd Merrill Studio has been renowned for its glamorous and eclectic mix of twentieth-century modern art furniture and lighting. Originally located in a 500-square-foot space at the corner of Stanton and Ludlow on New York City’s Lower East Side, the pioneering art gallery was one of the first to promote modernist and postmodernist American studio artisans.
Shortly after the 2008 release of Modern Americana, Merrill launched Studio Contemporary, an art exhibition-based program representing an international group of established and emerging contemporary artists. Today, the work of these artists is in high demand among collectors, designers, and curators around the modern art world.
Though the Studio Contemporary program presents a diverse group of artistic styles and media in its modern art. The artists all share an underlying drive to push the materials that comprise their works to their absolute aesthetic limits. Their dynamic, unique, and frequently groundbreaking works contribute to today’s increasingly relevant grey space between art and design.
The gallery exhibits its modern art throughout the year at some of the leading art and design fairs in the world.
