Kaari Upson – never, never ever, never in my life, never in all my born days, never in all my life, never – Los Angeles

Kaari Upson
never, never ever, never in my life, never in all my born days, never in all my life, never
August 6–October 8, 2022
Los Angeles

The gallery is honored to present the first solo show in Los Angeles by Kaari Upson in over a decade, and the first since her death in 2021. Titled by the artist, the exhibition debuts a remarkable series of sculptures and works on canvas created between 2020 and 2021, in which Upson's stirring characters, symbols and marks materialize through an array of painterly gestures; as well as examples from other recent series and installations that will receive their US premiere. Together, the works demonstrate the artist's unwavering urge to interpret the psyches and psychoses of our complex contemporary lives. 

Baldessari NY announcement

John Baldessari
Maquettes
September 10–October 29, 2022
New York

Sprüth Magers is pleased to announce the inaugural exhibition at its New York space, a presentation of roughly sixty of John Baldessari’s maquettes dating from the early 1980s to the 2000s, curated by Nana Bahlmann. Created as preparatory works and sketches for his celebrated large-scale pieces, these dynamic works on paper contain and reveal the artist’s original source materials from his vast image archive, from which he freely extracted, combined and thus re-contextualized elements to create his works. Together, the maquettes grant extraordinary insight into Baldessari’s inspiring way of seeing and distinct image-making process.
