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 large publication accompanies his Aspen Art Museum exhibition, comprising an extensive 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.

Gabriel Kuri
Nobody Needs to Know the Price of Your Saab


Over the past decade, Gabriel Kuri (born 1970) has been ransacking the paradoxes of material consumption, extracting both visual and linguistic value from the tracking systems and trivial marketing mechanisms that fill our daily lives. Kuri’s sculptures and collages are often fashioned from the residue of monetary exchanges and consumed goods that the artist collects on a daily basis, but their richness lies in their unusual calibration of manual and conceptual properties: his works reward eye and mind equally. “Model for a Victory Parade,” for example, consists of a conveyor belt with a crumpled energy-drink can trapped and perpetually tumbling at one end. The visual appeal of this work quickly opens out into speculations on the ironies of humankind’s energy consumption.

“Nobody Needs to Know the Price of Your Saab” is presented in conjunction with Kuri’s survey at Blaffer Art Museum.

Texts by Claudia Schmuckli, Elena Filipovic, Abraham Cruzvillegas.

Using familiar materials such as receipts, newspaper, band soaps, and plastic bags, Gabriel Kuri focuses our attention on contemporary consumer culture and the circulation of money, information, and energy in both our global economy and in our day-to-day activities. Kuri has been described as a playful accountant who uses personal experience as a point of departure to explore the ways we quantify and chart the most basic events and transactions in our lives.

Kuri is among a loose collection of artists from Mexico to gain international attention in recent years. His first solo museum exhibition in the U.S.  includes approximately 30 sculptures and 15 collages, including Untitled (Superama), a series of three nine-foot-tall tapestries intricately hand-woven in Mexico to resemble Wal-mart receipts.

Gabriel Kuri
All Probability Resolves into Form


Gabriel Kuri is known for his investigation into the manifestation of form and material. An ongoing interest of the artist is the structure of improvised disaster shelters and polling stations, highlighting our material relationship with aid, politics and economics, and questioning the possibilities of sculpture.

This limited edition publication—co-published with The Common Guild, Glasgow, on the occasion of a solo exhibition by Kuri—comprises a collection of found images of these structures, which both resemble and inform the artist’s sculptural practice.
Taking its title from David Hume’s work A Treatise of Human Nature(1739) in which he wrote that “all knowledge resolves itself into probability,” Kuri has twisted the phrase to suggest that the very idea of a future event tends to result in a material form.

“I have something for you, I’ll send it over. You know for four years now I have been trying to propagate shiso and it hasn’t grown. I tried everything: freezing and thawing the seeds, leaving them in the dark for a year, different temperatures and humidity… The seeds Taro sent me in February came up no problem, just in fine soil with a sheet of paper over the pot outside, no special equipment or lights. Crazy. The kitchen garden at home is now being taken over by green shiso plants with huge leaves everywhere. We have a glut, as the English call it. Fearful of it not reseeding and growing next year I’ve been stripping the leaves and producing shiso sugar syrup and shiso-infused vodka. The vodka is unbelievably good! I thought of proposing it to ABSOLUT as a new flavour. We’ll see. Anyway, I have a bottle for you! ”
