The gallery was founded in 1991 by Brent Sikkema. Originally called Wooster Gardens, the gallery was located on Wooster Street in SoHo. In 1999 the gallery moved to its present location in Chelsea, which later underwent extensive renovation and expansion. Michael Jenkins worked on several projects starting the year the gallery was founded, officially joining the gallery as director in 1996 and becoming senior partner in 2003.
