Freight + Volume is dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging and established artists, and in particular work which is innovative and not afraid to take risks. While Freight + Volume is especially interested in narrative and text-based material, ultimately our predominant criteria is the quality of the work itself, regardless of technique, content or style; with the motivation to show dynamic, visceral, and provocative new work in all media and dealing with a range of subject matter. In keeping with the tradition of publishing, with which the gallery was founded, Freight + Volume magazine was launched as an outlet to learn about the artists with whom the gallery works, as well as their friends and influences. The magazine is a medium through which to explore not only the work of our artists, but the creative process and the cult of personality. In addition, Freight + Volume regularly publishes limited-edition artists' books.
Established in 2005 in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan by Nick Lawrence (co-founder and former partner of LFL Gallery in Chelsea, owner/director of Arts+Leisure in Spanish Harlem, and owner/director of DNA Residency in Provincetown, MA), Freight+Volume was formed by combining the text-based, narrative philosophy and limited edition book focus of its two-year predecessor, Volume, with the motivation to show dynamic, visceral, and provocative new work in all media and dealing with a range of subject matter. In October 2015, the gallery relocated to the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
