Plane Space opened on August 28, 2002 in an 1855 firehouse. Its mission was to show the most engaging contemporary art being created today. The interior of the gallery was designed by the New York-based firm Deborah Berke & Partners Architects. Its 1,300-square-foot (120 m2) ground floor space housed over 40 shows in its life span and closed in December 2008.
The gallery's programming consisted of eight exhibitions annually of emerging to mid-career American and international artists working in sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, photography, and video.
Plane Space featured a summer artist residency program. A selected artist living outside of New York City was invited to live in the quarters above the gallery and work in the exhibition space during Plane Space's dormant month of August. As a result, each season, began with a site-specific installation. In 2007 the summer resident was British artist Zoe Mendelson and in 2008 the final summer resident was American artist Emily Counts.
