RON GORCHOV was born in Chicago in 1930. He has lived and worked in New York since the 1950s. Gorchov’s paintings are included in many prominent collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Detroit Institute of Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, the Everson Museum, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
Vito Schnabel Gallery has worked with Gorchov since 2005, when he presented an overview of the artist’s work from the 1970s through the early 2000s. It was the first comprehensive exhibition of Gorchov’s work and led to a solo exhibition the following year at MoMA PS1.
More recently, Vito Schnabel Gallery curated an exhibition of Gorchov’s work at Sotheby’s S|2 in London in February 2015, and presented an exhibition of Gorchov’s paintings in March 2016 at Vito Schnabel Gallery in St. Moritz, Switzerland
