Breese Little Gallery Announces Closure

Breese Little Gallery Announces Closure

The Breese Little gallery is slated to close its doors for good following the conclusion of its current
exhibition. In a statement released in July 2017, co-founders Josephine Breese and Harry Little
expressed regret at being unable to sustain the ambitious new program they envisioned for the
gallery. From its inception in 2010 until June 2016 (when it moved to Bethnal Green), the London
gallery was housed in Clerkenwell. The gallery’s founders referenced the shift in location and
subsequent logistical changes as key components in their decision.
Their announcement e-mail to gallery patrons and supporters focused on the positive impact
of the gallery: “We’ve been delighted to place works in many important private and institutional
collections in recent years, working alongside artists whose work we strongly believe in.” Its current
exhibition, 31 Women—a nod to the historic New York City exhibition organized by Peggy
Guggenheim in 1943—will continue until July 29.
