This Thursday, Clearing gallery, which operates out of Brooklyn and Brussels, will move into a new ground-floor space in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood that boasts 5,000 square feet, making it roughly five times larger than the second-floor location it has called home there for the past last three and a half years.

“After very happy teenage years, we’ve decided to start adult life,” said Clearing proprietor Olivier Babin, over the phone, noting that the original space lacked even desks, with windowsills often subbing in for the job.

The new space at 396 Johnson Avenue makes Clearing neighbors with Luhring Augustine’s Brooklyn outpost. The space opens on Thursday, October 2, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., with a show by Koenraad Dedobbeleer, who is Belgian, which, Babin noted, fits with the theme of the new space—a former truck repair depot that happens to be painted yellow and red, two of the three colors represented on the Belgian flag.
