Living Room - nyc

A creative space, an artistic laboratory fostering experimentation and collaboration; connecting brilliant, independent, and determined artists, performers, musicians, playwrights, filmmakers, and more, to each other and a community of art supporters.

We offer artists affordable space to start or finish a project and inspire creativity, inclusivity, and collaboration. We inspire artists to embrace their unique perspectives and express them freely. Our vision is to positively impact society and inspire future generations to embrace their creativity and individuality. ​Nestled between Chelsea, FIT, and Broadway, we have non-traditional gallery walls for visual artists, a living room for sharing engaging ideas and discourse for creative production, and a separate work-only studio space.​ 


Living Room is an extraordinary place. Thanks to artist/director Perri Neri, Living Room can be an art gallery, idea incubator, performance space, or an intimate living room. After having two exhibitions there in 2023, I am looking forward to what I can bring to the Chelsea location next! It is a gift to have a location to dream and explore in.

Our recent Bold Beauty Project Exhibition at Living Room-NYC Gallery was an extraordinary experience from the planning stages and installation to the opening reception and the closing farewell party.

Perri Neri meticulously helped execute our vision every step of the way. She went above and beyond to work with our Creative Director and also helped to promote the exhibition which introduced our work to new audiences.

The beautiful space is a stellar example of creativity and flexibility. Guests to the exhibition stayed for hours…a true testament to quality of the exhibition and their great level of comfort in the gallery. I give it a 10 out of 10 rating!

Working as a resident at The Living Room was a fantastic opportunity. Spending nearly a month there allowed me the time to conceptualize and develop a project that ultimately served as the catalyst for an entire body of work. The space boasts a captivating view, overlooking the historic Garment District in midtown Manhattan. The scenery is truly evocative, transforming from the lively daytime hustle of business as usual on the sidewalks to the enchanting sparkle of nighttime lights. Perri was accommodating and helpful. Whenever I had a quandary, she was around to help.

Perri and the Living Room have created an accommodating, accessible space for me to create bold creative theatrical projects. Perri goes above and beyond for the artists she works with and supports early-career artists to an unparalleled degree. I'm excited to continue to collaborate with Perri as I build my artistic community and practice and encourage anyone looking for an encouraging, flexible artistic home to do the same.

It's been three blissful weeks that I've spent at the Living Room NYC working. Following the footsteps of the mutual friend who introduced us and was an artist in residency before me, I was happy to repeat the experience. I had no expectation and just gave myself to the flow of the benevolent Living Room vibes. And what a treat it was! Quiet, calm, open environment that helped my shy inspiration to appear and guide me. Perri was an amazing host and her work is an inspiration in itself!

The Living Room is not only one of the hippest, warmest, and encouraging creative spaces I’ve ever had the pleasure of creating and presenting art in, it is also one of the most unique spaces that New York City has to offer. Just by booking The Living Room as your next rehearsal space, art opening, recital, reading, etc. you open yourself up to networking with artists from around the world. This space has not only been a safe space of creativity for me but has also been the birthplace of some of my most exciting collaborations. Perri Neri, has cultivated a culture that is the future of art in NYC.
