Photographer Mona Kuhn Galerie Xll

Galerie Xll Los Angeles announces the solo exhibition of Mona Kuhn: Works, a stunning career retrospective of one of the most respected and widely exhibited contemporary art photographers at work in the world today. The exhibition coincides with the launch of Mona Kuhn’s first monograph, “Works” which will be released in the US in April. The solo exhibition, showcasing her distinct aesthetic, will open with a book signing session on April 10 from 2pm to 4pm at the gallery’s new location at Bergamot Station Arts Center, which features four exhibition spaces and is open for limited-capacity viewings and private appointments. Mona Kuhn lives and works in Los Angeles and is currently an independent scholar at the Getty Research Institute. Her work is included in major institutions around the world. Chronicling a quarter century of work, the exhibition is Kuhn’s first retrospective with an underlying theme of humanity’s longing for spiritual connection and solidarity. "Works" features images from throughout Kuhn’s career, including some of the best works from each of her series along with previously unseen work, all of which triumphantly explore her unique expression of the strength and beauty of the female spirit. She is renowned for developing close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable intimacy. Her use of playful visual strategies reveals glimpses into the psyche as it is expressed through the human form, ultimately reinterpreting the nude in the canon of contemporary art. The Gallery’s owner, Valerie-Anne Giscard d’Estaing, the daughter of former French President Valery Giscard d’Estaing, says: “In this very strange year when most of us have been going through difficult times, Kuhn’s works bring us a moment of balance, a sense of freedom and joy in contemplating beauty for which I cannot thank her enough.” Galerie XII Los Angeles located at Bergamot Arts Center (Suite #B2) and is open to visit Wednesday through Saturday from 11 pm to 5 pm or by appointment: (424) 252 9004
