DESIGN PIER proposes an exploration of places, stories and cultures hiding behind every design object. Uncovering the historical, cultural and social context of the exhibits makes us see them beyond their aesthetics. They become flesh and blood storytellers of the world they were born in.

DP presents unique design pieces of leading edge designers from Asia, Middle East, South and North America transforming Usagi Gallery into a place where cultures, knowledge, and possibilities are exchanged.

Remains to Be Seen: Emerging Thai Photographers

Representing a remarkable diversity of style and originality of vision, Kanrapee Chokpaiboon, Pratya Jankong, and Tatchpasit Kunaporn are pushing the boundaries of photographic medium at a time when cliched imagery is ubiquitous. 

Opening reception took  place in conjunction with Dumbo Open Studios on Saturday, April 28, 5-8pm. 

a catalog of difference

by Andrew Lucia

A Catalog of Difference is a study of change across material and perceptual environments, be they images or objects, calling attention to those differences which make a difference. Through a series of visualizations this body of work explores formal diagrams that have been meticulously extracted from the gradients of surface curvature and ambient light within their respective environments.

Photography Exhibition

Tea & Water Pictures, in collaboration with Usagi NY, brings you a photography
exhibition with true soul and heart – sharing tales of compassion and the human
condition from different corners of the globe.

Drawing and Sculpture 

6.1.2017 - 8.2.2017

The exhibition opened with 108 drawings and over the course of the next two months expanded to include sculptural work created on site. The artist, whose practice includes assemblage and bricolage techniques, invited gallery visitors to surrender electronic waste, small toys, and other objects that would otherwise be discarded.

Yunjung Kang

4.6.2017 - 5.14.2017

Three artists whose work is informed by organic forms and physicality of the human body. Initially seemingly non-threatening and inviting to touch, their work explores the themes of dualities of attraction/repulsion, nature/artifice, grotesque, a perception of beauty, and sexuality.

Jeffrey Brosk

2.2.2017 - 3.30.2017

An exhibition of sculptural work created by MIT-trained architect-turned-artist Jeffrey Brosk. His signature wall-mounted wood sculptures, which make ample use of the juxtaposition between the natural variations in the texture of wood and refinement of slate and gold accents, invoke the stark, understated Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi.

9.15.2016 - 10.14.2016


EIGHTEEN exhibited the work of three artists working in sculpture, installation and transformation over time. The title of the show references the spatial concept of Gallery Usagi; architect Sou Fujimoto’s design is based on eighteen movable panels that divide, striate and give impermeability to our space. In “Eighteen”, the panels are used not as surfaces to display 2D work, but as interventions in space that divide time. 

Alou XII

4.15.2016 - 7.11.2016


At the heart of Alou XII’s first solo show in the United States, “yädë” (voyage in fulani), are conflicting feelings of displacement and discovery inherent in long-term separation from home. Lush, richly textured large-scale paintings and videos that comprise much of “yädë” occupy the space between figuration and abstraction as physical landscapes meet landscapes of memory and imagination.

Brooklyn in Process | Work by Marvel Architects explores the creative process and reveals, through multi-media presentation how one firm found inspiration for seven distinct projects.

The show features aerial video by Marvel Vision

“One vanishing art that can still be studied in the interstices of the assault of global retail is vernacular typography. All over the world, there are cities and towns that retain their rich traditions of vernacular signage. Unfortunately, the fate of these typographic havens is being threatened by the uniformity of corporate advertising, which ignores and subverts local history and tradition.”
–Molly Woodward



7.31.2015 - 9.8.2015


In his book “Shiro (White)”, Japanese designer Kenya Hara regards “white” not only as simply a color, but also as whiteness of paper, which is a trigger that inspires creativity, and emptiness as physical and mental space that pulls out the force of communication.
