A 5,500-sq. ft. former industrial warehouse converted into a gallery, this space has long had ambitious programming with playful and diverse artists. Founder Richard L. Feigen started out in 1975 with his first gallery in Chicago, which concentrated on German Expressionism and Surrealism. Upon moving to New York in the early 1960s, Feigen shifted gears and exhibited works uptown by classic nineteenth- and twentieth- century artists such as van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Brancusi and Mondrian. Meanwhile, downtown, Feigen’s Soho gallery was the first to show works in America by Joseph Beuys (in a 1966 group show) and held John Baldessari's first solo exhibition in New York (1970). In 1989, Feigen reverted back to his roots, opening a contemporary space in Chicago, which he then transplanted to Chelsea eight years later. Now Kinz, Tillou + Feigen operates independently from the original Richard L. Feigen & Co., showcasing a mix of young unknowns and established darlings—abstract video artist sensation Jeremy Blake, photographer Doug Hall and conceptual artist Ray Johnson—whose work ranges from colorful collages to serene nature photographs to wry political installations. There are even some Rosenquists lying about. A six-week rotation of solo and group exhibitions and a selection of gallery artists’ recent pieces include enough clever works on paper, tech-savvy installations, and abstract paintings to provide a satisfying overview of the contemporary art scene.
