Thornton Dial, the self-taught Alabama artist whose best-known work — dense, chaotic wall reliefs that exist somewhere between painting and sculpture — recently entered the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is moving into the Manhattan gallery ecosphere. Mr. Dial, 87, will be represented by the Marianne Boesky Gallery, whose roster includes artists like Frank Stella, the painter Barnaby Furnas and the director John Waters.

Iwan Wirth, President and co-founder of the internationally acclaimed modern and contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth, announced that the company will build a permanent home in New York City’s west Chelsea arts district. One of the most sought-after locations in New York, Chelsea is brimming with top-notch galleries, including David Zwirner Gallery, Paul Kasmin Gallery, Andrea Rosen Gallery, Marianne Boesky Gallery, and Lehmann Maupin. This new venue will replace Hauser & Wirth’s current temporary downtown gallery, which will continue to host exhibitions and various programs until its lease expires in 2017. The 7,400-square-foot, multi-level space will complement Hauser & Wirth’s townhouse on East 69th Street.

The new Hauser & Wirth  gallery will be designed by Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects, who has worked with the gallery since the 1990s on its various locations in Zurich, London, and New York.

Works by American artist Frank Stella are currently being featured in three exhibitions organized by leading galleries. Dominique Lévy is inaugurating her London outpost with the show “Local History: Castellani, Judd, Stella,” which is complemented by a partner exhibition of the same title at her Manhattan gallery. Meanwhile, Marianne Boesky Gallery is hosting a show of Stella’s sculptures in New York. Stella is co-represented by Lévy and Boesky.

Stella, who has been a dominant figure in abstract painting since the early 1960s, is best known for his Minimalist works and post-painterly abstractions. He gained immediate recognition in 1959, thanks to his “Black Paintings” -- a series of precisely-striped canvases that were created according to a predetermined, circumscribed system conceived by the artist.
