ABOUT THE GALLERY
In 2014 Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim founded the HG Contemporary Gallery, which specializes in bold, process-oriented work by emerging and established artists. HG Contemporary is committed to developing its international program as a modern and contemporary art gallery by presenting ambitious and diverse exhibitions that emphasize both aesthetics and concept. The HG Contemporary Gallery opened its inaugural show with an exhibition by acclaimed street artist RETNA, known for his unique calligraphic script that he created through composing different aspects of language into one all his own. Previous exhibitions held at the gallery have featured artists Stuart McAlpine Miller, Jason Dussault, and Massimo Agostinelli.
The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm.
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR
Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim was raised in the former German capital city of Bonn, where he had early access to the creative arts through his maternal grandmother, a noted antiques and art collector, and his mother. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in 2005 from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge and went on to work as a financial analyst for companies such as Ernst & Young and The Hyatt Corporation. His activity in contemporary art was fostered at a ground level; interacting with and hosting events for artists in the United States and Europe. The active secondary art market trade would align him with his current business partner to open the inaugural group exhibition of the HG Contemporary Gallery in 2014 featuring artist RETNA. Apart from his duties with the gallery, Hoerle-Guggenheim is active with local and international charitable organizations, serving on the Host Committee for The Bowery Mission and as Board Chairman of Elevate New York with the Bronx Studio School for Writers and Artists.
