Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends
From July 1, 2010 forward, Brown will become Brown Collective, a non-profit arts initiative aimed at supporting emerging and mid-career artists via exhibitions, resources, and artist and institutional support. Brown will cease commercial gallery activities and will become a new venture, weighted in curatorial collaborations and special projects. The current location of Lower Ground Floor / 42 Hoxton Square will close, and new office and project locations will be announced in the coming months.
Brown Collective aims to focus on a dynamic exhibitions program. One special Focus section will be announced each year, and will change in theme and location annually. During the first year, the Focus will be Video, and the Collective will collaborate with various artist-run spaces, sites, and curators.
Brown Collective will also collaborate with other arts-related projects and organizations.
The Collective's Board, Staff, and Advisors are in the process of formation, with further details in a future announcement.
If you have any questions regarding the artists or program at Brown, please contact the gallery on +44 (0)20 7729 1290 or email@example.com through the end of June.

Based in London, Brown opened in June 2007 on Whitecross Street with an exhibition of video work by Nathalie Djurberg, followed by a History of Experimental Sound Recordings show curated by Justin Lieberman. In September 2007, Brown moved to Hoxton Square, in a Lower Ground Floor space designed by Samson Adjei/Offmo with an exhibition by British artist Sam Porritt. The gallery aims to exhibit emerging and mid-career artists working across all media including painting, sculpture, video, sound, performance, installation, and photography.
