Kaari Upson

Kaari Upson works in a wide array of media including sculpture, video, drawing and painting. She has created a singular artistic universe that melds autobiographical and collective traumas, fears and fantasies and often illuminates what might be called “Americanness” or the “American psyche.” The Los Angeles-based artist’s artful conjuring of abject imagery targets viewers’ psychological comfort zones, confronting them with visceral and affecting evocations of loss and instability.

Her work has been exhibited at numerous museums internationally and she is represented at galleries such as Sprüth Magers in Berlin, Massimo de Carlo in Milan, and White Cube in London.

Her works are in the permanent collections of CAPC Musée d'art contemporain de Bordeaux, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, The Hague, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

The Bildhauerei department is taking the opportunity to invite artists and curators to present lectures via video conference. It is fortunate for us to have them speak, due to their usually busy schedules, and so we recommend making a small amount of online research and looking into the speakers work beforehand. The lectures and Q&A take place on Wednesdays evenings from 18hr-20hr
