Gavin Brown is closing his four-story Harlem gallery

Updated: Oct 27, 2020

Gavin Brown is closing his eponymous four-story gallery at 439 W 127th Street.

The British art dealer, who moved his headquarters to an industrial corner of Harlem in 2016, is joining the Gladstone Gallery as partner, according to a report in Artnet.

Known as Gavin Brown's Enterprise, the gallery occupied a renovated former brewery in Manhattanville.

Over the last four years, the massive space has exhibited the work of such artists as Alex Katz, LaToya Ruby Frazer, and Arthur Jafa, winner of the Golden Lion at the 2019 Venice Biennale.

The Covid pandemic played a role in the decision. The gallery has been closed to the public since March.

When Art Basel cancelled its huge fair this spring, his talks with the Gladstone Gallery accelerated, Brown told the New York Times.
