After 29 years and 200 exhibitions, Chicago's Donald Young Gallery will close at the end of October, six month's after the dealer's death.
Young established his gallery in 1983, working with artists including Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, and Jeff Koons. After a move to Seattle in the early '90s, the gallery returned to Chicago in 1999. The gallery was known especially for its early involvement and commercial success with the medium of video, initially showing Bruce Nauman and later Rodney Graham, Gary Hill and Bill Viola.
Prior to his death on Apr. 12, Young launched a series of exhibitions that brought together the work of contemporary artists and the writings of the Swiss author Robert Walser. The sixth and final exhibition in the series, "In the Spirit of Walser," including Robert Graham and Josiah McElheny, remains open until Oct. 31.
