NYC Gallerist Denied Entry to the USA
on 02 March 2017
As longtime fans (and neighbors) of NYC's design gallery Chamber, we were shocked to hear that its owner, gallerist Juan Garcia Mosqueda, was detained upon re-entry to the US and sent back to Buenos Aires recently. Mosqueda, a legal resident of the US for the last decade, who lives on the Lower East Side, was returning to oversee the opening of the gallery's latest exhibition. After a 14-hour interrogation and waiting process, Mosqueda was denied entry. In an open letter, he vocalizes his opposition to the 45th President's overall immigration policy and staunchly anti-art stance, while encouraging all to contact your government representatives and ask for a more inclusive nation.
