More about Gavin Brown Enterprise & “Tomorrow Will Still Be Ours” A Festival of Visionary Arts, Ideas & Activism

A bit about Gavin Brown Enterprise:  The gallery was established by Gavin Brown in 1994 on Broome Street, in the west Soho neighborhood of New York City.  The inaugural Broome street exhibition was by the British artist Steven Pippin. Pippin transformed the gallery space into a camera obscura, and in doing so quickly established the unconventional meter that has since become a defining characteristic of the gallery’s approach.

Other early shows at GBE include a show of paintings by Peter Doig, Catherine Opie photographs, and a two-person show of works by Andy Warhol and Rirkrit Tiravanija.  After moves to the Meatpacking District and Greenwich Street in the West Village featuring the early works by the British painter Chris Ofili, installations by Martin Creed, the first show of work by Oliver Payne and Nick Relph, the first of artist Rob Pruitt’s famed “flea markets”, and Jonathan Horowitz’s exhibition “Obama ‘08”, in the summer of 2015 GBE moved to it’s current location in Harlem on West 127th Street with three floors of exhibition space. Movin on up indeed!
