Emma Scully Gallery champions cutting edge contemporary collectible design. Located in a 19th Century townhouse on the Upper East Side, we present challenging work in a rich historic context. We represent and support the work of groundbreaking living artists, designers, and craftspeople.
Critical to the gallery’s mission is the exhibition program where new work is commissioned around conceptual themes. This intellectual backbone of our collection, resulting from years of exhibition, is the question of how to deal with the challenges of creating for the today’s material society: the landscape of superabundance, the ecological cost of overproduction and the shift from the physical to the digital world.
In promoting equity the gallery recognizes the need to facilitate production in order to support the broadest range of talent in the design community. The gallery therefore acts as manufacturer for a portion of the collection work.
