About the Gallery
Based in New York and Brussels, C L E A R I N G focuses on young contemporary artists and has given several internationally acclaimed emerging artists—including Korakrit Arunanondchai, Marina Pinsky, Calvin Marcus, and Harold Ancart—their first gallery shows. Founded by Olivier Babin in Brooklyn in 2011, the gallery expanded to Brussels in 2012, enabling its American artists to exhibit in Europe and vice versa. Both locations have since relocated to significantly larger spaces: in 2014, the Brooklyn gallery moved to a 5,000-square-foot former truck repair depot in Bushwick, followed by a new Brussels space in 2017. While C L E A R I N G is particularly well known for its work with emerging artists, the gallery has also organized exhibitions of lesser-known historical works: the new Brussels space was inaugurated with an exhibition of works by the late Austrian sculptor Bruno Gironcoli, whose estate is represented by the gallery, and in 2015, presented works by the British Pop art pioneer Eduardo Paolozzi. In late 2017, the gallery opened an additional space on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
