On the occasion of Frieze Masters 2021, Kayne Griffin is proud to present a solo booth of works by Huguette Caland as part of the Spotlight sector, curated by Laura Hoptman.

Caland’s body of work is a cohesive exploration of self and moves fluidly among styles, mediums, materials, and subject matter. As part of this presentation, the gallery is exhibiting a selection of self-portraits made predominantly in the 1990s while Caland was living in Paris. Self-portraits are critical to our understanding of both portraiture and the history of art. They are the form in which many artists have come to be remembered, offering insights into their lives, surroundings, and even their state of mind.

Most recently in 2021, Caland—who passed away in 2019—was subject to her most comprehensive solo museum exhibition at the Drawing Center in New York. She was also subject to a career retrospective at the Tate St Ives in May of 2019 and has participated in major exhibitions at the Venice Biennale, Sharjah Biennial, Hammer Museum and Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, amongst many others.
