CHUNG | NAMONT’s mission is to offer art lovers and collectors the opportunity to meet artists from diverse backgrounds and practices. The gallery’s program seeks to nurture emerging talent, showcase new works by established artists and investigate photography-based art practices.
As a curator and an educator in art for the last 13 years, Emmanuelle has met many artists from the Bay Area and elsewhere whose practices are very compelling but whose work are not represented. Our gallery’s aim is not only showcasing work but also creating a physical space for an encounter between the artists and their future collectors. Our goal is to engage the public in conversations about the pieces and in discovering the unique processes and methods of these talented artists.
CHUNG | NAMONT is founded by two people from different cultures and traditions united by a common goal: We want to make art accessible by introducing patrons to artists with innovative visions and differing voices who are at various stages of their careers. It is about the love of art, the passion and joy one feels when one finds that perfect piece and the yearning for more.
