Black & White Gallery was founded in Brooklyn, NY in 2002. From the start, the Gallery has been committed to cultivating promising artists in the initial and more advanced phases of their careers exploring contemporary themes and concepts through multiple mediums. Black & White Project Space was established in 2010 as a 501c(3) not-for-profit art organization dedicated to providing artists the freedom to experiment with new ideas and mediums without commercial pressures. Since 2019 Black & White Gallery/Project Space continues to experiment with different exhibition modules both in digital and physical spaces and devotes its resources to development, production and promotion of cutting-edge creative ideas and expansion into online content.


Henry Khudyakov, Study in Flag, 1985-1999, Oil on canvas, 6.5 x 8.5 inches

Henry Khudyakov (1930-2019) is a Russian-American artist. Upon his arrival to the USA in 1974, his growing interest in the forces that influence our lives led him to break away from writing poetry and crossover to visual arts. Methodically repeated shapes, varying within a controlled set of parameters, allowed him to focus on medium and form, rather than content, narrative and structure.

From the outset of his career as a visual artist, Khudyakov's manipulation of cheap collectibles, rejection of familiar artistic practices, integration of process-based technique, and most importantly, the interconnection between text and image, suggest strong affinities with Fluxus artists. Khudyakov's work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC and The Center Pompidou, Paris.

His work was included in group exhibitions at The Moscow Museum of Modern Art, The Center Pompidou, Paris, and Nassau County Museum of Art, Roselyn Harbor, NY.
