About the Gallery
MAGENTA PLAINS is a contemporary art gallery directed by Olivia Smith, Chris Dorland, and David Deutsch. The gallery occupies a two-floor space on the Lower East Side, presenting work by contemporary artists in various media.  With an emphasis on community, history, and newly emergent art, the gallery's mission is to foster context and meaning for the development of new ideas as well as to present and preserve the work of older generations of artists. Emphasizing a cross-generational dialogue both in terms of its program and its founders, who range in age from late 20s to early 70s, MAGENTA PLAINS often exhibits the work of younger artists alongside more established figures. Since opening in late 2016, the gallery has presented important exhibitions of lesser-known historical work, including a show of drawings and works on paper by William Wegman and the pioneering computer artist Lillian Schwartz's first New York solo show, featuring films and artworks made from 1968 to the present, as well as exhibitions by emerging artists such as Theodore Darst, Trevor Shimizu, and Aaron Aujla.
