New York gallerist Gavin Brown will open a new gallery space in Rome next month, ARTnews reports. Brown says his decision to open in the Italian capital was based solely on the space he found, an 8th century church restored in the 17th century, with 30-foot ceilings.

The gallery will open on 6 April, but the inaugural exhibition hasn’t been confirmed yet. The Rome gallery will be an addition to Gavin Brown’s other spaces, which include his main gallery in New York’s West Side, a project space on the East Side, the LA artist-run space 356 Mission and a white-box space inside his Harlem townhouse that is occasionally open to the public. Brown is also planning on leaving his main gallery space for a new New York space, within the next few months.
