Kaari Upson: Good Thing You Are Not Alone

Kaari Upson: Good Thing You Are Not Alone
Library Shelf Location 18.UPSO
Publication Date 2017

Encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture and video, Kaari Upson's (born 1972) works track open-ended, circuitous narratives that weave elements of fantasy, physical and psychological trauma, and the often-fraught pursuit of an American ideal.

For The Larry Project (2005-ongoing), she unearthed a well of projected histories, images and artifacts inspired by forgotten fragments from the abandoned personal archive of a man whom she had never met. Upson has continued this forensic approach in subsequent projects. This catalog accompanying her New Museum exhibition features an interview with the artist by Paul McCarthy, a new essay by curator Margot Norton and a text by artist Jim Shaw. It also debuts her newest series, centering around a family living in a Las Vegas tract house.
