Founded in the 9th century, the chapel of Sant’Andrea de Scaphis located in Trastevere, Rome was deconsecrated in 1942 and then closed for decades. On Easter Sunday, 2015, Gavin Brown reopened its doors with a work by Rirkrit Tiravanija. Since then, the space has hosted memorable exhibitions by, among others, Joan Jonas, Mark Leckey, Jannis Kounellis, Arthur Jafa, and Laura Owens.
Sant’Andrea de Scaphis is a unique space where past and present intertwine. Currently presenting nuns + monks by Ugo Rondinone, upcoming exhibitions in 2021 include Precious Okoyomon and Aaron Gilbert.
