"P·P·O·W has been a fixture of New York’s art world for nearly four decades, managing not only to survive but also to stay ahead of the curve."
Alice Newell-Hanson, The New York Times Style Magazine, 2021
P·P·O·W was founded by Wendy Olsoff and Penny Pilkington in the first wave of the East Village art galleries in New York City in 1983. In 1988 the gallery moved to Soho, in 2002 moved to Chelsea, and opened in Tribeca in 2021. Since its inception, the gallery has remained true to its early vision, showing contemporary work in all media. There is a commitment to the work of pioneering artists and the next generation of artists who create work exploring issues of gender, sexuality, race and social inequality.
