Noteworthy artists represented here include Jared Buckhiester, Brandon Herman, Slava Mogutin, Desi Santiago and Paul Mpagi Sepuya amongst others. envoy enterprises (a/k/a 'envoy'), located in the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan, is a leading contemporary art gallery with a commitment to new artistic talent. envoy enterprises was founded by Jimi Dams in 2005 and was the first gallery to abandon its prime location in Chelsea for the Lower East Side in 2007.
Home to major cross-over exhibitions, envoy envoy enterprises functions as a think tank.
Aside from the exhibitions in its gallery space, envoy enterprises presents video and performance artists as well as emerging bands both in the gallery and at Home Sweet Home, located in the basement underneath the gallery.
