As the first art gallery to open in the SoHo district of Manhattan, New York, The Paula Cooper Gallery focuses on conceptual and minimalist art. Its opening exhibition in 1968 was an exhibition benefitting the Student Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam. Since then, the gallery has relocated to the Chelsea district of New York into a building redesigned by the notable Richard Gluckman, of Gluckman Mayner Architects. In addition to this great location, a second adjacent exhibition space exists also on 21st street. Along with its function as a prominent art gallery, it also hosts concerts, dance performances, poetry reading, and benefit events. The Paula Cooper Gallery clearly shows devotion towards all forms of art.
