Intricate networks of materials, objects, and spaces characterize Nancy Lupo’s complex installations. Her multisensorial and affective work often contains organic elements, such as quinoa, foil-covered chocolates, and fruit, and banal items, including dental floss, dog bowls, and folding chairs, in various states of rot or use. Her work addresses the ways in which we move through spaces, as if following latent scripts that punctuate and dictate the rituals and rhythms that shape our daily lives. In many cases, Lupo has installed works outside of the gallery or museum, in city parks, at the beach, on the telephone, and in other semi-private and public spaces.

Nancy Lupo (b. 1983, Flagstaff, Arizona) works in Los Angeles. She received her BFA from The Cooper Union, in 2007, and MFA from Yale University, in 2011. She has had solo exhibitions at Antenna Space, Shanghai (2018); Kristina Kite Gallery, Los Angeles (2017); Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon, France (2017); Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo (2016); Swiss Institute, New York (2016); 1857, Oslo (2015); WALLSPACE, New York (2015); and LAXART, Los Angeles (2014), among others. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2016); Atlanta Contemporary (2016); MoMA PS1, Long Island City, New York (2014); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2013); and Night Gallery, Los Angeles (2013), among others. She is a recipient of numerous awards, including the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Artist Grant (2015), Foundation for Contemporary Art Emergency Grant (2013), and Virginia Commonwealth University’s Fountainhead Fellowship (2012).
