After long operating a highly visible public gallery, we continue to actively participate in art fairs and organize special exhibitions and independent projects from Chelsea to the East Village, Lower East Side, Upper East Side, East Hampton and Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.
Lance Kinz initiated the gallery program in 1989 under the auspices of the Richard L. Feigen & Co., and was joined by Co-director Susan Reynolds from 1993 to 2006. First located in Chicago, the Gallery moved to New York in 1997 as "Feigen Contemporary" and was one of the earliest and largest galleries in Chelsea. Michelle Tillou became a partner in 2006, first as "Kinz, Tillou + Feigen", and then as "Kinz + Tillou Fine Art".
Through our history we have exhibited works by hundreds of artists and presented noteworthy solo exhibitions by Robert Rauschenberg, Ray Johnson, James Rosenquist, Robert Wilson, Elizabeth Murray, Andres Serrano, Catherine Opie, and Thomas Nozkowski, amongst many others, as well as also being amongst the earliest to present artists such as John Coplans, Inigo Manglano Ovalle, Gregory Crewdson and Jeremy Blake. We continue to champion artists and artworks we find of special interest as such.
We have participated in international art fairs including Art Basel, ARCO Madrid, Art Chicago, The Armory Show, Pulse NY and Miami, Art Hamptons, Outsider Art Fair, as well as fairs in Los Angeles, Santa Fe and Guadalajara, Mexico.
Lance Kinz and Michelle Tillou have a combined experience of over 45 years within a broad range of the art world in promoting artists, presenting exhibitions and placing works of art with public museums and private collections.
