Brown James

James Brown was born in Los Angeles in 1951 and died on February 22, 2020 in Merida, Mexico. Already, in 1978, the Gemeentemuseum in Arnheim, The Netherlands, gave him his first institutional one-man show. Since then, his work has been exhibited in a number of important American and European museums. Recently, the contemporary art museum in Oaxaca and the Diego Rivera-Anaguacalli museum in Mexico paid tribute to him with the organisation of two major exhibitions.
