PALM BEACH, FLA.- Ben Brown Fine Arts
, London and Hong Kong, announced the opening of our new location at 244 Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida. The gallery is looking forward to welcoming its clients to view a curated selection of iconic works by gallery artists and twentieth century masters. The inaugural exhibition is dedicated to the legacy of major American and European artists who developed a radical approach to making art, stretching traditional notions of painting and representation to its physical and conceptual limits. The show explores the ground-breaking practices of artists Lucio Fontana and Alighiero Boetti in Italy, Georg Baselitz, Andreas Gursky and Gerhard Richter in Germany, and Alexander Calder, Jim Dine, Alex Katz, Jeff Koons and Andy Warhol in the US. The works encompass a variety of media, illuminating each artist at their apex. In addition to the aforementioned artists, the gallery is also exhibiting important works by gallery artists Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne, Vik Muniz, Ena Swansea and Gavin Turk.
"Following a year without much travel and very few art fairs, we are pleased to announce our expansion into the US, where we are broadening our global network with a great space in Palm Beach. Complementing our galleries already well established in London and Hong Kong, Ben Brown Fine Arts Palm Beach will present both artists from our roster and 20th Century masters in what is quickly becoming an exciting international arts hub."
