The exhibition, curated by Margot Norton, Associate Curator, is the first New York museum presentation of work by Los Angeles-based artist Kaari Upson (b. 1972, San Bernardino, CA). Encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture, and video, Upson’s works track open-ended, circuitous narratives that weave elements of fantasy, physical and psychological trauma, and the often-fraught pursuit of an American ideal.
