Kristina Kite Gallery opened in 2017 with a site-specific exhibition by the artist Nancy Lupo. Lupo chose the historic bank building in the Los Angeles neighborhood of West Adams as one address among several that comprised her multi-faceted debut solo show. Upon the closing of Lupo’s exhibition, the gallery was formally inaugurated as the home of Kristina Kite Gallery. The exhibitions that followed focused primarily on established artists based in Los Angeles or with deep connections to the city, such as Lisa Lapinski, Michael Queenland and Nicole Miller. The gallery continues to support ambitious projects by formally and conceptually significant artists, as well as introduce emerging artists, such as Hanna Hur and Jasper Marsalis, into this rigorous context. As the gallery enters its fifth year, we continue to expand the parameters of our programming and to promote work that is both challenging and inspiring to our deeply engaged community.
