In 2002, the gallery moved to a first floor space on 24th Street, briefly sharing space with an art book gallery owned by one of the partners. In 2004, Zach Feuer purchased the gallery from his partners and changed the gallery name to "Zach Feuer Gallery". In 2010, the gallery moved to the Dia Art Foundation's old space on 22nd Street.[6]
