Eric Brown was co-owner of Tibor de Nagy Gallery for twenty-five years. He and his partner took a gallery with a rich history and reinvigorated it to create a dynamic new business. There, Brown developed branding and marketing strategies for the gallery’s roster of distinguished artists and artist estates, including John Ashbery, Nell Blaine, Joe Brainard, Rudy Burckhardt, Kathy Butterly, Jane Freilicher, Jess, Shirley Jaffe, Louisa Matthiasdottir, Sarah McEneaney, and Larry Rivers.
Brown has curated landmark exhibitions that have received national media coverage, and he has worked closely with major museums around the world. He has written scholarly essays for dozens of exhibition catalogues and monographs, and has edited and published volumes of poetry and art under the Tibor de Nagy Gallery imprint.
As a noted authority on art and respected member of the New York art community, Brown has given many talks and participated on numerous public panels. Art publications and media contacts have frequently turned to Brown for comments and interviews on the contemporary art market and for artist profiles. He has served on several advisory boards and benefit committees, including the Friends of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center and the Flow Chart Foundation.
Brown studied art at Vassar College, graduating in 1990.
