Artist Walkthrough at Galerie Lelong

May 4–May 4, 2024

The Young Patron’s Council and select guests attended a private viewing and tour with artist Chris Watts of his exhibition, Integration, at Galerie lelong.

Drawing upon four of the artist’s ongoing series, the exhibition highlighted Watts’s practice of creating spaces for introspection, remembrance, and meditation through his use of abstraction, transparency, and subtle subversions of art historical conventions. Referencing the concept of integration as it relates to psychedelic therapies, Watts investigated how the Afro-Indigenous cosmologies of these undefinable yet universal spaces can be internalized to better understand the physical world.
