LONDON.- Hales Gallery announced the representation of celebrated artist Sunil Gupta (b. 1953 New Delhi, India) across London and New York. Hales is dedicated to broadening the understanding of Gupta’s work and legacy, continuing the gallery’s commitment to artists whose vital work has reshaped art history.

Over a career spanning more than four decades, Gupta has maintained a visionary approach to photography, producing a rich body of work that has pioneered a unique social and political commentary. The artist’s diasporic experience of multiple cultures informs a practice dedicated to complex themes of race, migration and queer identity - his own lived experience a point of departure for photographic projects, born from a desire to see himself and others like him represented in art history. Across a career predominantly focused on photography - also incorporating film, writing, and curation - Gupta has remained dedicated to advocating the visibility of queer identity, cultivating a body of work which is simultaneously political and deeply personal.

Following his formative years in India, Gupta moved to Montreal (Canada) as a teenager in the 1960s, before relocating to New York City in 1976, eventually enrolling in a photography course at the New School. After moving to London in 1977 he enrolled at the Royal College of Art in 1981 and has remained engaged with photography as a critical practice - this year receiving his PhD from the University of Westminster. Gupta’s work is regularly shown in major museums across the globe and is represented in many important collections including; the Museum of Modern Art New York (USA), Tate Britain (UK), Philadelphia Museum of Art (USA), Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography (Japan), the Royal Ontario Museum (Canada), Arts Council of Great Britain and Harvard University (MA, USA). In 1989, Gupta co-founded Autograph – the Association of Black Photographers, and in 1992 he was awarded an INIVA curatorial franchise, the Organisation for Visual Arts (OVA), aimed at promoting a better understanding of culturally diverse visual arts practices.

In 2020, Gupta will be the subject of a touring retrospective, a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery (London, UK) and the Ryerson Image Centre (Toronto, Canada.) Hales will present Gupta’s work at Frieze London 2019.
