Earlier this spring, Robert Mann Gallery announced it was leaving Chelsea and moving to the Upper East Side, with a plan to open in a new space this fall (here). In recent discussions with the gallery, we’ve learned that they’ve decided to stay at 210 Eleventh Avenue after all (here).
Given the churn in Chelsea gallery space, I’m sure the landlord was keen to keep Mann in the building and looks to have made a last minute save. There are certainly lots of positives to staying in the same building: eliminating the relocation costs, no client confusion, connections with existing art tenants and the like.
The gallery is currently remodeling and will reopen in September in a slightly scaled down space. A good looking Robert Frank show is scheduled for the debut.
