> DESCRIPTION

Will Brown is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition, Illegitimate Business—a collaboration with Zachary Royer Scholz and Brion Nuda Rosch. This exhibition of artworks and ephemera with peculiar provenance investigates the ways in which works of art are acquired outside of galleries and auction houses. The eclectic collection of objects, from some of the world’s most revered artists, have one thing in common—they have all been obtained without any monetary transaction, and often illicitly. Illegitimate Business explores the life of an artwork after it leaves the artist’s hands and posits that the value of a work, removed from the market, is perhaps most evident in the narrative of its acquisition. We would like to thank all of our lenders, who for obvious reasons will remain anonymous.
