Team Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City, with an additional project space in Venice, CA. It was founded by José Freire and Lisa Ruyter in 1996. Team has represented such artists as Ryan McGinley, Banks Violette, Cory Arcangel, Sam McKinniss, and Gardar Eide Einarsson.

Team was founded by José Freire and artist Lisa Ruyter in 1996, the gallery moved from Chelsea to SoHo in 2006, and opened a second space in the same neighborhood, in 2011. In November 2014, Team opened an outpost in Venice, CA, in a domestic space, christened Team Bungalow.

Team places an especial emphasis on artists focused on counterculture and radical politics – such as Gardar Eide Einarsson, Santiago Sierra and Banks Violette – as well as artists working in New Media – such as Cory Arcangel, Parker Ito, and Tabor Robak.

Freire has been the gallery’s sole owner and director since 2001.
