Hilton | Asmus Contemporary

Located  in Chicago’s River North Art District, Hilton | Asmus Contemporary specializes in modern and contemporary paintings, works on paper, mixed media and sculpture with a special focus on photography.  Featuring internationally known artists from United States, Northern Europe and the Mediterranean Region.

Hilton |  Asmus Contemporary is a strong proponent of the art of Photography and Film. We do not see a divide between the two disciplines, as they are the most immediate and indelible way to document the history of cultures, of people, of nations and our planet. Whether it is the history of our film industry that has changed the way we see our world, or artists making history by using FILM, moving or still, Hilton | Asmus Contemporary seeks to initiate a dialogue, to bring awareness to the contemporary issues of our times.                     

Representing: David Yarrow, Terry O’Neill, Julian Wasser, Lawrence Schiller, Susan Aurinko, Blake Ward, Boky Hackel-Ward, Jack Perno, Sophia Collier

Summer 2020 update: 

We are thrilled to announce that our gallery has officially reopened!  What a memorable last few months it has been.  From lockdowns to history making protests, we have seen it all!  But Chicago is a resilient city.  And human beings are irrepressible in their passion for life.  Here we are, as the arts have been the recorders of history since the beginning of human evolution.  

If you recall, we began the year 2020 with two thoughts in mind: The Art and Science of Happiness and Our Year of Conservation. We continue to travel that path as these two themes have become more important than ever. Although we have had a few detours along the way, we believe that we must continue our efforts in the field of environmental conservation through art, and always, the pursuit of happiness. 

As we had to postpone the opening of Paul Nicklen's and Cristina Mittermeier's premier exhibition, ORIGINS, last April, you will finally be able to view their iconic conservation photography on our walls.
