Paul Mpagi Sepuya (b. 1982, San Bernardino, CA) is a Los Angeles-based artist working in photography. His work focuses on the production of portraiture in the artist’s studio as a site of homoerotic social relations, and the potential of blackness in the space
of the “dark room.” His work was recently shown in “Being: New Photography 2018” at the Museum of Modern Art and solo museum exhibition “Double Enclosure” at FOAM Amsterdam and is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney and Guggenheim Museums, The Studio Museum in Harlem and MOCA Los Angeles, among others. Sepuya is currently visiting artist faculty at California Institute of the Arts and Bard Summer MFA Program. Upcoming exhibitions include “The Conditions” at team (gallery, inc.), New York (March 7, 2019) and a survey of work from 2008 - 2019 at CAM St. Louis (May 2019).
