Visiting Critics: Robert Walden / Henry Chung

We are super excited to welcome visiting critics Robert Walden and Henry Chung co-owners of Robert Henry Contemporary today!

Robert Henry Contemporary seeks to present work that is both visually engaging and conceptually compelling. The work we show is a reflection of our personal tastes with a penchant for the minimal, abstract and conceptual. We visualize our curatorial interests as orbiting around a central core of ideas that include, but are not limited to ontology, time, ephemerality, landscape, space and beauty. This orbit is not circular but elliptical with some exhibitions exploring these ideas more than others and in varying degrees. We seek consistency over grandiose statement and consider the evolution of the gallery a process similar to the working lives of the artists we represent. To that end we seek to provide our clients artwork that engages their eyes as much as their brains.
