Samson Projects moving
Samson Projects, which opened in 2004, is moving from its dungeon location in the gallery building at 450 Harrison Ave. in Boston to an upstairs storefront in the same building.
Owner Camilo Alvarez says he’ll be occupying a third of the space that had been Restoration Resources (the other two thirds have been taken over by Tour de France). The main gallery will be about 100 square feet larger than his current 1,200, but he’ll also have a basement “viewing room” and office. “The sexiest part is its 13-foot-high ceilings and that’s really important for work,” he says.
Alvarez planned to move in by May 1, but construction delays by building owner GTI Properties postponed that. “They’re now saying Aug. 1st,” he says. He hopes to present work in both the old and raw new space in June, before formally moving into the new spot with a show by New York artist Michael Phelan at the start of September and Bostonian Matthew Rich in October.
