The Hill Art Foundation is a public exhibition and education space that presents rotating exhibitions and ongoing arts education programs. Opened in 2019 in a custom-built 7,700 square-foot space in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, the Foundation is free and open to the public. Exhibitions include works on loan from the Hill Collection, as well as collaborative projects with leading artists, collections, and institutions. The Foundation was founded by J. Tomilson and Janine Hill, collectors and philanthropists based in New York.

“People of refinement have a disinclination to colors,” Goethe argued in an 1810 treatise on chromatic perception. That’s as good a justification as any for the three shows, all excellent, quite unalike, staged so far at this private foundation. Last year we saw the paintings and photography of Christopher Wool (black, white, gray) and the sculptures of Charles Ray (silver, aluminum); now the Hill turns to Minjung Kim, a South Korean artist whose painstaking, profoundly beautiful ink paintings deploy, in the main, a muffled palette of grays and blacks.”

“Andy Hall: You opened the Hill Art Foundation a year ago. Has it changed the direction of your collecting?
Tom Hill: After doing the Christopher Wool show—which he curated—I saw his work in a different light. As a result, I pursued additional pieces, and we now have the largest collection of his works. But the show also gave me more perspective. The same thing happened with the Charles Ray show, for which Charles juxtaposed his work with Renaissance and baroque bronzes of both pagan and Christian themes. I literally bought another religious bronze because of it.”
