Gabriel Kuri: With Personal Thanks to Their Contractual Thingness

 

Using familiar materials such as receipts, newspaper and plastic bags, Mexican-born, Los Angeles–based artist Gabriel Kuri (born 1970) is interested in the way that money mediates almost all human relationships. This publication accompanies his Aspen Art Museum exhibition, comprising a selection of works that center on Kuri's interest in the transactional residue of daily life and broad-based ideas of tracking systems in economics, politics, consumption and production. The catalogue also features essays by Daniel McClean and Heidi Zuckerman, as well as an interview between Kuri and Sofia Hernández Chong Cuy.
