Mona Kuhn: Works

8 March - 17 April 2021

Edwynn Houk Gallery is pleased to present “Mona Kuhn: Works,” an online exhibition of photographs from throughout the artist’s career, including prints exclusively presented in this viewing room. The exhibition is live from 4 March - 17 April 2021, in celebration of Women’s History Month in March and the publication of a monograph of the same title in April.


Mona Kuhn (Brazilian, b. 1969) is one of the most respected contemporary photographers of her time, best known for her large-scale photographs of the human form. Throughout a career spanning more than twenty years, the underlying theme of her work is her reflection on humanity's longing for spiritual connection and solidarity. As she solidified her photographic style, Kuhn created a notable approach to the nude by developing friendships with her subjects, and employing a range of playful visual strategies that use natural light and bucolic settings to evoke a sublime sense of comfort between the human figure and its environment. Her work is natural, restful, and a reinterpretation of the nude in the canon of contemporary art.
