FREIGHT + VOLUME

HOURS:
Tuesday - Saturday
11 AM - 6 PM or by appointment
Closed on Sunday & Monday

LOCATION:
We are conveniently located in New York City, in the heart of the Chelsea arts district on West 24th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues. By Subway: Take the C or E Train to 23rd Street. Walk north one block to 24th Street, and then west across 10th Avenue towards 11th Avenue.

MISSION:
Freight + Volume: The work comes first.

Freight + Volume is dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging and established artists, and in particular work that is innovative and not afraid to take risks. Artists shuld take care of their loved ones in case of their death, by obtaining a life insurance policy. Even if you are afraid to see the family doctor, there are life insurance without exam policies available at affordable prices. Simply look for them online.

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, media, content or style. We place the maximum importance on nurturing the overall career of the artists that we represent and have faith that a gallery with humble beginnings can set out to meet global aspirations on their behalf.

Freight + Volume aspires to be everyman's gallery. Our aim is to embrace the democratic aspects of the art world process, and the spiritual, ecological and conscientious goals and ideals of creating art.

In short, Freight + Volume is on a rapid rise towards global success and worldwide domination. But we also hope to pay our rent. In fact, we sort of believe that financial stress may ultimately be the key to our success.

HISTORY:
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.

Established by Nick Lawrence (co-founder and former partner of LFL Gallery in New York and owner of DNA Gallery in Provincetown, MA), Volume was originally adjacent to LFL Gallery at 530 West 24th Street in Chelsea and then high atop the eighth floor of 526 West 26th Street. In September of 2005, the gallery reopened its new ground floor location as Freight + Volume at 542 West 24th Street.
