Harkawik began as the project of curator and artist Peter Harkawik. Following a series of large survey exhibitions (Touchy Feely, 2011, Made in Space, 2013, Walk Artisanal, 2016), in 2018 the gallery was founded as Real Pain in Mid City, Los Angeles. Our New York gallery, located on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side, opened in late 2020. Harkawik works with artists to foster creative development, building exhibitions of lasting significance through a collaborative approach that closely mirrors studio practice. We are a proud member of NADA and Gallery Platform Los Angeles. We do not accept or review unsolicited submissions, nor do we rent out any of our spaces for events.
