The gallery is in the process of expanding from their current salon on the third floor of 30 Old Bond Street into the gallery space on the second floor.
“We thought, ‘when will we ever have another opportunity to get more space on Bond Street?’” said Sophie Jackson who runs Symbolic & Chase with its founder Martin Travis.
The new space opens September of this year.
One of the main motivations for Symbolic & Chase’s expansion is to house their extensive library, which Jackson describes as “one of our main sources of pride.”
The second floor will hold the bulk of the library, allowing the upper floor to be used for more evening and client hospitality events.
The additional space was formerly owned by the late dealer Robert Kleiner.
Jackson and Travis have no plans for further expansion following their move into the new gallery.
“London is such a good location,” said Jackson, “It remains – at least for now – a great hub for our clients. It’s a place people come as part of their social calendar and there isn’t another place that would benefit us more.”
