Robert Mann Gallery to Relocate to Manhattan Upper East Side

Returning to the neighborhood where it all began in the mid-1980s, the Robert Mann Gallery will reside in a limestone mansion at 24 East 81st St., one block from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, six blocks from the Whitney Museum of American Art, and right in the heart of the prestigious Upper East Side neighborhood.

"I began my gallery in 1985 in a townhouse on East 76th St., staying there for 14 years," says Robert Mann. "In 1999 we were among the first wave of art galleries to settle in Chelsea, and the first photography gallery to do so. The move to Chelsea enabled us to expand our program to include large scale contemporary works, some of which pushed the boundaries of traditional photography."

"After 10 years in Chelsea, the gallery is ready for a change. We will continue to present exhibitions of contemporary and classical works, promoting the careers of our contemporary artists within the broader context of photographic history. The Upper East Side is a supportive neighborhood that I know well and has the benefit of proximity to many of our clients and the institutions with which we work."

Following Mary Mattingly's exhibition at the gallery's Chelsea location, "Nomadographies", closing May 23, the gallery will be available by appointment only until further notice.
