Family Guy

As part of its Viewing Room programme, Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present Family Guy. Art dealer and collector Kenny Schachter’s latest foray into the murky waters of curatorial practice positions his own work and that of his wife, Ilona Rich, and children, Adrian, Kai, Gabriel and Sage Schachter, alongside the artists his family grew up with, including Vito Acconci, Sarah Lucas, Rachel Harrison, Rudolf Stingel, Paul Thek, Franz West and Christopher Wool. All of these artists have played an intrinsic role in the lives of Schachter and his family, providing daily inspiration and directing them towards novel artistic languages and new means of communication.

To date, Schachter has curated three exhibitions on this theme: Friends and Family, London, UK, 2012, and two iterations of Nuclear Family, Los Angeles, CA and Shanghai, China, both 2017. Adrian Schachter is currently completing the painting programme at the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY and Kai Schachter is enrolled at the Slade School of Fine Art, London, UK. Ilona Rich, who studied at Parsons Paris and self-taught artist Kenny Schachter, have exhibited internationally; Kenny most recently at Joel Mesler’s Rental Gallery, East Hampton, NY, while Rich also designs a clothing line with an outlet on the King’s Road, London, UK.
