About the gallery
Scemtovici & Benowitz Gallery opens the doors of a house from the early 20th century, transformed into a contemporary art gallery.
Scemtovici & Benowitz Gallery is a creative space of the current era, with glimpses into the future, a nursery for young creators, and a useful laboratory for observing what was created before us, laying the foundations for what we are today. Amidst the (dis)order of post-disciplinarity and eclecticism within art forms, within the space of our (meta)gallery dedicated to contemporary creation, we aim to connect respect with boldness, to host artists who challenge truths, to open up new paths for those unjustly forgotten, both emerging and established artists.
We are traversing a period rich in colors with plagues, wars, energy crises, new beliefs, and mythologies with one foot in the future. "Everything is old and yet everything is new," and because this is part of our belief, we will try to blend romanticism into one place, the solitude of the demiurge artist who, like Caspar David Friedrich's "Wanderer," observes horizons and selves, postmodernism (de)constructing current affairs, concepts, architectures, and structures of present arts. We blend current ideas with traditions in art, desiring a dialogue amidst contemporary sensibilities in the era of post-truth and misinformation.
The Scemtovici & Benowitz Gallery team invites you to join us on this artistic and creative journey together.
