The sculptures, installations, collages, and photographs of Gabriel Kuri turn everyday life into a poetic, meditative subject matter. Kuri uses common materials like receipts, newspapers, soap bands and plastic bags to create artworks that address the contemporary consumer culture and the circulation of money and information in a global economy. “Fundamentally bred from the Post-Minimalists, Kuri’s sculpture and installations push us further than superficial materiality, molded by intrinsic social and cultural constructs and complicated layers of subtlety and subversion,” explains curator Evan J. Garza.
