Artists Titus Kaphar has signed with UTA.
Kaphar — whose artwork has appeared in exhibitions at Harlem’s Studio Museum, MoMA PS1, and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC — was behind the Time magazine cover for the issue centering on George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement. Recently the Yale graduate, who was named a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow in 2018, had a solo exhibition as Gagosian New York.
Kaphar will son launch a production banner, Revolution Ready, under which he will creature feature-length and short-form films drawing from his painting and sculpture work. UTA will work with Kaphar on projects that range across television, film, publishing, and podcasts, among other mediums.
Along with UTA, Gagosian Gallery will continue to represent Kaphar.
