Matthew Brown is pleased to announce the opening of a new gallery in New York, located at 390 Broadway in Tribeca. The gallery will open to the public on April 29, 2024, with a solo exhibition by TARWUK.

Matthew Brown New York is designed by Studio MDA. Taking up the entire ground floor of a historic landmarked cast-iron building, the gallery comprises 3,500 square feet of exhibition space. The inaugural exhibition by TARWUK, entitled Good Night, Ernst Toller!—an ode to the 20th century German playwright—features new drawings, paintings, and sculptures that document the artists' recent explorations in theater and performance. Approaching theater as a means of social and self reorganization, TARWUK considers ways of displacing and reconstructing identity through the ascribed roles of actor and spectator.

TARWUK is the artistic collaboration of Ivana Vuksic (b. 1981, Dubrovnik, Croatia) and Bruno Pogacnik Tremow (b. 1981, Zagreb). Vuksic received her MA from the Faculty of Political Sciences, Zagreb and Tremow received dual MFAs from Columbia University and Academy of Fine Arts, Zagreb.

Recent solo and two person exhibitions include Conceived for the Stage, White Cube, Paris (2023); Бољи живоt, HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark, Graz, Austria (2023); Posadila sam kost u zimskom vrtu, White Cube, London (2023); Ante mare et terras, Maramotti Collection, Emilia Romagna, Italy (2021); A Musical Score at the End of the World, Matthew Brown, Los Angeles, (2021); Bijeg u Noć, Martos Gallery, New York (2020); Pčele su prije bole češće. Nije li tako?Molim?,15 Orient, New York (2020); Vernacular River Holds 6 Bodies Down, Lauba, Zagreb (2020); Second Celebration of the Five, Evening Hours, New York (2019); LENT, Taito Ryokan, Tokyo (2019); TARWUK with Gee Vaucher, Gauntlet, New York (2018); and ’…Ti živiš već hiljadu godina.’ Team Gallery, New York (2018).

A new print by TARWUK published by Utopia Editions will be released on David Zwirner's website at the end of June. The print, a multi-plate etching with aquatint, is made with Harlan & Weaver, a 40-year-old intaglio print workshop on the Lower East Side in New York.
