Emily Sundblad


Emily Sundblad (b. 1977, Stockholm) is a New York-based artist and co-founder/co-director of Reena Spaulings, a collective project in the medium of an artist persona and a gallery. Her work revolves around performing identities, whether in an ongoing series of auto-erotic fantasies in gouache on hotel stationary or as Reena Spaulings, fictional “it-girl” and director of the (real) gallery. In addition to launching the careers of many influential artists, Reena Spaulings has been the subject of numerous exhibitions including at Museum Ludwig, Cologne; Kunsthalle Zurich and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Sundblad recently published a leporello book of drawings, The Jungly Book (Hacienda Books, 2020), and exhibited a series of her paintings at Galerie Neu, Berlin. This work is offered as an extension of Sundblad’s recent participation in the group exhibition Watercolours, Chapter 1 at Weiss Falk, Basel.
