Kavi Gupta Gallery was established in 2002 with a focus on presenting exhibitions of international emerging and mid-career artists in all media. Currently represented artists demonstrate a strong exhibition record with museum solo shows and biennales, with works having been placed in important institutional and public collections. Since its inception, the gallery program has been supplemented by site-specific installations, public works, academic panels, and curated projects at art fairs. The gallery’s curatorially-focused, project-based program has been the subject of enormous popular and critical response.
The gallery is continually recognized for ambitious and innovative programming and has won the award for Best Show Nationally from the International Association of Art Critics (AICA-USA) three times, first for An Epitaph for Civil Rights and Other Domesticated Structures by Theaster Gates in 2011, again for Apparatus by Roxy Paine in 2013, and most recently for I was born to do great things, by Mickalene Thomas in 2015. Kavi Gupta comprises two main spaces, including a new 8,000 sq. ft. exhibition space in addition to its original gallery. To accommodate a growing program of original publications, Kavi Gupta expanded to include Kavi Gupta | EDITIONS in 2014, a new curated space focusing on art texts and monographs.
