Anton Kern Gallery is Leaving Chelsea for Midtown

According to Nate Freeman of ARTnews, Anton Kern Gallery plans on swapping its Chelsea address for one in Midtown. The new space will be located on 55th Street between Madison and 5th Avenue.

Founded in 1996, the gallery first opened its doors in SoHo then moved to Chelsea in 2001. The 20th street building that housed the gallery for fifteen years was sold in 2014 to a developer, DDG, for over $24 million. The gallery has not yet announced the move, but a representative from architect Markus Dochantsch’s studioMDA confirmed that the studio is designing its new space.
