Mitchell Algus Gallery


Time Out says

Since the early 1990s, Mitchell Algus has occupied a unique niche in New York's art world as a gallerist dedicated to reviving the careers of overlooked or semiforgotten artists from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, some of whom—Betty Tompkins, Lee Lozano, Judith Berstein—have gone on to recieve exposure at major museums and big-name galleries. Remarkably, Algus supported his operation by teaching science at a Queens public high school until 2014, when he retired from teaching to pursue his passion for art full time. Since then, he's continued his mission of mainstreaming artists whose practices are underrecognized.
