signs and symbols is a contemporary art space grounded in performance. Operating nomadically since 2012, signs and symbols presented performances in New York and internationally. Our first physical space in the Lower East Side on Forsyth Street (est. April 2018) served as a curatorial platform and multi-disciplinary incubator bringing together diverse mediums to stimulate dialogue and creative connections. In the fall of 2021, the gallery relocated to its current location at 249 East Houston Street.

signs and symbols' curatorial vision is rooted in performance and time-based media, informed and anchored by the work of three important art historical figures — Ulay, VALIE EXPORT and Vito Acconci — and thus encompasses performance, photography and architecture, with a focus on site-specific and performative practices with an emphasis on the body in performance, painting and other time-based media. signs and symbols’ experimental ethos is artist-centric, offering a place for experimentation and the development of new work. The gallery represents an international group of critically acclaimed and emerging contemporary artists working in a variety of media. Direct collaboration with the artist is central to each exhibition, allowing the gallery to present new original programming.

The gallery is curated, programmed and directed by Mitra Khorasheh, an independent curator and educator. signs and symbols is a proud member of the New Art Dealers Alliance.

We look forward to your visit.
