Following Sotheby's and prior to opening Ben Brown Fine Arts, Brown spent two years as co-managing director at Waddington Galleries.
BEN BROWN FINE ARTS
Ben Brown Fine Arts opened its first location on Cork Street in the heart of Mayfair in 2004. The gallery has prominently positioned itself on the contemporary art scene with the sole UK representation of artists such as Ron Arad, Vik Muniz, François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne, Gavin Turk, Not Vital, Heinz Mack, and the Estate of Keith Haring. Also renowned for its strong expertise in 20th Century Italian Art, the gallery has been exhibiting the work of Lucio Fontana, Alighiero Boetti and Mimmo Rotella, amongst others, since its inception. In September of 2008, Ben Brown Fine Arts opened a new exhibition space on Brook's Mews, also in Mayfair, designed by architect Alexander Maybank.
In 2009 Brown took the first step in an international expansion with the opening of an exhibition space in Hong Kong under the label of Ben Brown Fine Arts. Designed by Andre Fu, Brown's Hong Kong space was the first London gallery to open in the Pedder Building, offering a programme of western and international art exhibitions tailored to the Asian market. Since its inception the Hong Kong gallery has hosted exhibitions of gallery artists Ron Arad, Miquel Barceló, Candida Höfer, Caio Fonseca, Heinz Mack and Claude & François-Xavier Lalanne as well as presenting unique Modern art exhibitions, most notably of works by Pablo Picasso and Alighiero Boetti.
