Kenny Schachter is an American artist, writer, and curator based in New York. In both his writing and his art he has developed a unique, critical meta language addressing the behaviors and mechanisms of the ruthless art market beast, to dissect all of its major players. Traversing effortlessly between the roles of artist, curator, dealer, and writer, it seems logical that his own art is informed by the critique of the art market as well.
In addition to writing widely for various international publications including most recently New York Magazine and The Times, he had a retrospective of his art at Joel Mesler’s Rental Gallery in New York in the summer of 2018, curated an exhibit at Simon Lee Gallery in London, fall 2018 and a one-person show at Kantor Gallery, LA, February 2019. Schachter has been profiled in The New York Times Magazine, and London's Observer, Independent, and Telegraph.
