Kavi Gupta amplifies voices of diverse and underrepresented artists to expand the canon of art history. Through innovative and ambitious exhibitions, multimedia programming and rigorous publications, Kavi Gupta fosters an evolving conversation among international communities about art and ideas. Kavi Gupta believes culture is created by communities and that representation is a step toward inclusivity and justice. Equity in the art field starts with everyone getting a seat at the table, but it does not end there. Kavi Gupta's vision is to seek out and offer a platform to artists whose vitality expands and deepens the cultural conversation, especially if theirs is a voice that has been marginalized due to their identity, their social or political perspective or their aesthetic position. The gallery's founder Kavi Gupta established his namesake gallery in 2000, in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. Today, the organization operates multiple museum-quality exhibition spaces at 835 W. Washington Blvd. and 219 N. Elizabeth St. in Chicago and 219/215 E. Buffalo St. in New Buffalo, Michigan, as well as a large-scale warehouse and conservation center and a dedicated space for research and archives. Their publishing imprint, Kavi Gupta Editions, designs and publishes high-quality monographs, exhibition catalogues, artist editions and academic texts, while regularly partnering with institutions and such art publishing leaders as Skira, Mousse, Phaidon and DAP.   In addition to hosting more than a dozen major exhibitions each year, and participating in vital international art fairs such as Frieze New York and London, Frieze Masters, Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Basel Hong Kong, EXPO Chicago and the New York Armory Show, Kavi Gupta hosts artist talks, facilitates special programming in support of philanthropic causes and fosters intellectual discourse by regularly bringing artists, curators and collectors together with academics and experts in the contemporary art field.
