Haunch of Venison, the Christie’s International-owned gallery at Rockefeller Center, will move into Yvon Lambert’s space on 21st street, according to Art Daily.
News that Mr. Lambert would close the Chelsea space and “largely retire from gallery life” was first reported by ARTINFO, which also named Haunch as one of the dealers looking to move into the space.
Last year, Haunch took over the Robert Goff gallery, bringing Mr. Goff into the fold, along with a few of his artists. Their plans to move to Chelsea were known at that time, but Goff’s space was never in the cards because it was too small at 1,300 square feet — Haunch’s current space in midtown boasts 17,000 square feet on two floors. The Yvon Lambert space boasts 6,000 square feet.
Update, 5/3, 11:30 a.m.
An earlier version of this post misstated the square footage of Mr. Goff’s former gallery space. The post has been edited to reflect the Haunch’s intentions more accurately.
