Books on Artists in ASSISTED

The past couple months have been a whirlwind here at Kavi Gupta, with September marking the debut of our editions booth at EXPO Chicago as well as three new exhibitions at our galleries. Working on Jessica Stockholder's shows at our Elizabeth Street space has been particularly exciting for us, as we've been able to watch her expertly play the dual role of artist/curator. Jessica complements her solo show, Door Hinges, with the work of sixteen other artists with diverse practices in a group show, ASSISTED. The result is a cohesive exhibition that is as poetic as it is logical. If you live in Chicago and haven't seen the shows, here's some eye candy to entice you toward the West Loop:
