(°1970) is born in Mexico City, Mexico and lives and works in Brussels.
Gabriel Kuri creates visually refined sculptures, collages, installations, and photographs, working from repurposed natural, industrial, and mass-produced objects (insulation foam, shells, soda cans, and stones, to name only a few). In Kuri’s work, which is often responsive to its exhibition site, questions of form and the nature of sculpture are of equal importance to more social, political, and economic concerns regarding the circulation of commodities (artworks included) and information within a global market.
Kuri has exhibited in numerous venues, including recently at: Sadie Coles HQ, London – solo (2017); Whitechapel Gallery, London (2017); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2018); Alte Fabrik, Old Factory, Rapperswil, CH (2016) – solo; Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Frankfurt (2016); Kukje Gallery, Seoul, South Korea – solo (2015); Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerpen (2015); Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Chicago (2015); Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, Colorado – solo (2014).
Gabriel Kuri is represented by Kurimanzutto, Mexico, Franco Noero, Torino, Esther Schipper, Berlin and Regen Projects, Los Angeles.
