Faces Profile

Annetta Kapon’s multi-media works, videos, sculptures, photos and drawings, are structured on ideas of horizontality, photography, language, labor and repetition. Her highly mediated representations are of things that are not what they appear to be, yet they do not lie. Her uncanny sculptures often contain familiar objects whose combinations and recontextualizations allow a rethinking of their political, historic and symbolic meaning.

Her work has been featured at Side Street Projects, Jewish Museum in Greece, the University of Chicago, LACE, Exit Art, Wexner Center for the Arts and the Biennale of Sydney among others. She has had solo exhibitions at Shoshana Wayne Gallery, Armstrong/Schoenheit, French Institute and Zefxis in Greece, Carnegie Mellon University, U.C. Riverside, Camac Gallery in France, and Southern Exposure in San Francisco.

Kapon lives in Los Angeles and has exhibited in the United States and abroad since 1982. She is a professor in Graduate Studies at Otis College of Art and Design, where she teaches both studio and theory seminars. She received her BFA from Otis College of Art and her MFA from UCLA.
