Maccarone is a contemporary art gallery that has two exhibition spaces in the West Village of New York City, along with a gallery space in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles.[1]

Founded in 2001 by Michele Maccarone,[2] the gallery opened in an abandoned electronics store at 45 Canal Street. The gallery was among the first to exhibit in Chinatown, and the space allowed for the mounting of several projects historic in scope and unique to the space, including young artists alongside historic figures. For the opening show by Christoph Büchel, visitors had to sign a waiver before crawling through a carved hole in the wall to enter various small rooms, some of which were only four feet high.[3]

In 2007, the gallery moved to the West Village where it inhabits a 6,000 square feet (560 m2) space at 630 Greenwich Street. In 2012, Maccarone took over the lease from a space that had been home to a dry cleaner around the corner but in the same building as her gallery at 630 Greenwich Street.[4]

Between 2005 and 2007, Maccarone presented exhibitions at MC, a project space she operated jointly with the dealer Christian Haye in Culver City.[5][6] On September 19, 2015 – one day before the scheduled debut of The Broad nearby – Maccarone Los Angeles opened at 300 South Mission Road in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Located in an industrial building constructed in 1926 and transformed by Jeffrey Allsbrook and Silvia Kuhle of Los Angeles-based firm Standard, the new space has 50,000 square feet (4,600 m2), including a 15,000 square feet (1,400 m2) vacant lot to show outdoor sculpture.[7]
