I would somehow still find it pertinent to call those "contemporary art
gallery", where the artists might be defunct but once had chosen this
gallerist to be represented by him. Even if for an art historian the post
modernists are no more "contemporary" in 2016, the gallery still can be
called "contemporary art gallery" if it already existed by the time the
represented artist was contemporary himself.
