Los Angeles gallery Matthew Brown has announced that it is inaugurating a second space in the city. Occupying a 4,000-square-foot historic 1930s-era building at 712 North La Brea Avenue, directly across the street from the gallery’s current headquarters, the new location will open May 29 with a solo exhibition by painter Sasha Gordon. Exhibitions by TARWUK, Patricia Ayres, and Dan Herschlein will follow, to be succeeded by shows featuring Los Angeles–based Kenturah Davis and Alfonso Gonzalez Jr.
“I feel so lucky to be able to work with each artist on the roster,” said founder Matthew Brown in a statement. “They constantly inspire me and I’m excited to continue to grow together. Los Angeles has been so supportive, and I’m really looking forward to this opportunity where we can expand the programming.”
Brown made waves in 2019 when he established his first gallery in LA at the tender age of twenty-three, with the specific aim of showcasing local talent. Since then, he has expanded his stable to include artists living and working outside the city.
