Upcoming Exhibition

Anne Imhof

EMO



February 15, 2023 - May 6, 2023
Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to announce EMO, a solo exhibition by Anne Imhof, the largest presentation of the artist’s work in the United States to date and her first in Los Angeles. Over the past decade, Imhof has developed a deeply moving and varied practice that encompasses sculpture, painting, drawing, installation, video and performance. EMO brings together several new bodies of work across multiple mediums, putting each in dialogue with found objects in ways that implicate visitors’ bodies as they move through the space, at turns exalting and frustrating the viewing experience.

 
Past Exhibitions

Nancy Holt

Locating Perception



October 28, 2022 - January 14, 2023
Nancy Holt’s work addresses the consistent examination of how we attempt to understand our place in the world. The artist is one of the most important figures of earth, land, and conceptual art movements. An innovator of site-specific installation and the moving image, she recalibrated the limits of art, expanding the places where art could be found and embracing the new media of her time. Across five decades she investigated perception, systems and place.

John Baldessari

The Story Underneath



September 9, 2022 - October 29, 2022
Sprüth Magers is pleased to announce the inaugural exhibition at its New York space, a presentation of over seventy-five of John Baldessari's maquettes dating from the early 1980s to the 2000s, curated by Nana Bahlmann. Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are the global representatives of the Estate of John Baldessari. 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.

Kaari Upson

never, never ever, never in my life, never in all my born days, never in all my life, never



August 4, 2022 - October 15, 2022
The gallery is honored to present the first solo show in Los Angeles by Kaari Upson in over a decade, and the first in the United States 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.

Barbara Kruger



March 19, 2022 - April 16, 2022
Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to present an exhibition of new and historical works by Barbara Kruger at the Los Angeles gallery, timed with her major exhibition, Thinking of You. I Mean Me. I Mean You., on view across Wilshire Boulevard at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (March 20–July 17, 2022).

Hanne Darboven

Six Books on 1968



March 19, 2022 - July 16, 2022
Widely acknowledged as one of conceptual art's founding artists, and a rare woman amid that canon, Hanne Darboven offered a unique and fascinating voice in the turn to structural systems in the art of the late 1960s onward. At the Los Angeles gallery, Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to present the West Coast premiere of the artist's first film work, Six Books on 1968 (1969), a groundbreaking installation that is key to grasping Darboven's overall process and artistic ethos
