About David Castillo:

David Castillo cultivates artists with a far-reaching national and international impact on cultural and critical spaces. These spaces include museums and other institutions, private collections, and, importantly, also discourses on art through art publications and media. The gallery is an important platform for artists once excluded from the history of art and history more generally and who are now defining the aesthetics and critical ideas of our time. By successfully placing the work of its artists, David Castillo has advanced conversations on overlooked histories and has become an important space for inclusion and diversity of today’s great artists. The gallery’s artists are doing the work of reframing history: outlining their cross-disciplinary nature and their disobedience to be contained and fully understood. In multitudes of histories carried within, the artists’ works become diverse sites for reflection on the past and on the conditions of the present moment.
