491 Projects is an online platform and itinerant gallery that specializes in the meticulous and conceptual curation of influential art and design.

Foundationally non-hierarchical, 491 is an archive of tactile affinities selected for their modernity, novelty, and spontaneity, regardless of status. At the heart of it, 491 and all objects within are chosen in the hopes of prompting new ways of seeing. Its namesake is a nod to Francis Picabia's literary magazine 391 which is itself an homage to Alfred Stieglitz's New York photography gallery, 291, famously located in Midtown Manhattan between 1905 and 1917 at 291 Fifth Avenue in New York City.
