Since its inception, K Contemporary has made a name for itself by recontextualizing and informing the dialogue about how we experience art. This artist-centric gallery has a focus on contemporary and conceptual art, as informed by historical context, while providing its patrons with engaging exhibitions, pop-ups, art interventions and art fairs. Through these immersive and experiential displays, K Contemporary acts as a catalyst for engaging discussion about the role of contemporary art in society.

In the years since opening the gallery, Doug Kacena (the owner),  has facilitated exhibitions at major institutions like Crystal Bridges, Denver Art Museum and internationally-recognized events like the Sharjah Biennial and Biennial of the Americas. While rotating gallery exhibits are a big part of K Contemporary’s presence, its most renowned displays come in the form of art interventions K Contemporary organizes with the artists it represents. Regularly,  K Contemporary seeks out unusual locations and situations for exhibitions, like the Colorado Governor’s Residence at Boettcher Mansion in Denver, and the unprecedented #ArtFindsUs mobile art exhibition that roamed the streets of Denver, Boulder and surrounding cities in quarantine during the international pandemic. 

K Contemporary’s mission is to foster  an environment that helps artists develop their ideas and produce artwork with depth and contextual significance, while creating a platform for Colorado-based artists to have national and international influence, and bring incredibly engaging work from international artists to Denver. K Contemporary aims to revolutionize the role of a contemporary gallery in the community. K Contemporary is a member of Denver Art Dealers Association (DADA)
