Walter Robinson has been at the forefront of the American art scene for decades, both as an art critic and artist. But it’s only in the last few years that his role as an artist has begun to be given the level of recognition and attention that it deserves.
“Walter painted Nurse Paintings before Richard Prince and Spin Paintings before Damien Hirst. He has long been at the center of the art community but his modest manner and his disdain for aggressive careerism have left his work less recognized than it should be,” art dealer Jeffrey Deitch has said.
Doing its part to celebrate Robinson’s important contributions to the fabric of contemporary American art history, Vito Schnabel Gallery is presenting a solo exhibition of Robinson’s work at its space in St. Moritz Switzerland until September 2.
