Kavi Gupta is a leading contemporary art gallery based in Chicago. Its two permanent gallery locations host more than a dozen museum quality exhibitions each year; its publishing imprint, Kavi Gupta | Editions, produces unique, high quality artist books and catalogues; and the gallery participates in many of the most influential global art fairs each year, including Art Basel Hong Kong, Frieze New York, Frieze London, the New York Armory Fair, Chicago Expo, and Art Basel Miami Beach.

Passion, curiosity, and joie de vivre drive daily operations at Kavi Gupta, and an earnest love for art history permeates the culture of the entire team. One key differentiator that sets Kavi Gupta’s programming apart is our interest in discovering under-represented and underappreciated artists who are deserving of global attention. Sometimes an artist is under exposed to the art world because their work is non-commercial, conceptual, or based on social practice concepts. Other times it is because they originate from a location too far from a major art center—whether that is Southeast Asia, South America, Africa, or the American Midwest. Still other times, an artist is overlooked because of biases related to gender, race, or some other aspect of personal identity. Kavi Gupta is intrinsically dedicated to finding such artists, facilitating their work, and exposing their efforts to the international art world.
