Kaari Upson

5900 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90036

Over a prolific twenty-year period, Kaari Upson created a powerful body of work that mined the emotional linkages and traumas embedded within the objects and architectures that surround us every day. Working across sculpture, painting, drawing, installation, performance and video, the artist explored relationships between the self and others, between inner life and external reality, and the doublings and repetitions that continually resurface in our past and present. Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are honored to present the first solo exhibition of Upson's work in Los Angeles in over a decade, and the first in the United States since her death in 2021. Titled by the artist, the exhibition premieres several new series that demonstrate an artist at the height of her creative powers.

Kaari Upson: never, never ever, never in my life, never in all my born days, never in all my live, never will open with a reception on August 3rd, 6-9 PM. The exhibition will be on view August 4th though October 8th.
