Jeremy Kost

Based in: New York

One of the highlights of Frieze Week New York 2012 was Of An Instance, a Chelsea pop-up exhibition organized by the Andy Warhol Museum that paired Polaroids by Warhol with an extensive range of work (multi-exposure single Polaroids, Polaroid collages, painting and film) by Jeremy Kost (born 1977 in Corpus Christi, TX). Funded by Hugo Boss, the show served as a prelude to Friends with Benefits, Kost's solo at the Pittsburgh institution, which opened on December 1 and remains on view through January 27. Kost's 2012 also included a solo at Galerie Nuke in Paris and group shows at NRW-Forum in Dusseldorf and Grey Area, Freight + Volume and RH Gallery in New York, amongst others. This year, he will participate in White Boys, curated by Hank Willis Thomas, at the Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey, I Killed My Father, I Ate Human Flesh, I Quiver With Joy | An Obsession with Pier Paolo Pasolini, organized by Invisible Exports at Allegra LaViola Gallery in New York, and Young Americans, curated by Simmy Swinder at Gajah Gallery in Singapore. He will also have a solo at Angstrom Projects in Dallas, with possible solos to follow in New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. Look out for the release of Oh! U Pretty Things, his second monograph, in the fall.
