Hilde Lynn Helphenstein, AKA Jerry Gogosian, has Signed With UTA


Hilde Lynn Helphenstein, AKA Jerry Gogosian, has signed with UTA.

The visual artist and digital storyteller is the brains behind @jerrygogosian, a popular Instagram meme account that satirizes and comments on the global art world through viral images, videos and text pieces. UTA, the Hollywood talent, entertainment and sports company, will partner with Helphenstein on upcoming projects across a range of media.

“Together, we stand on the cusp of a thrilling chapter, ready to seize the myriad of opportunities that await and to make an indelible impact on the world of art and culture,” Helphenstein said in a statement on Tuesday. She is currently at work with the charity English Heritage on an exhibition scheduled for 2025.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Hilde Lynn Helphenstein to the UTA Fine Arts family. She is a luminary in the art world, known for fostering a vibrant community through her engaging social channels. Her commitment to supporting fellow artists is evident throughout her work as is her dedication to making the notoriously opaque art world feel welcoming to more people,” UTA Fine Arts’ senior director Harrison Tenzer added in a statement.

Having launched @jerrygogosian as a pseudonym, Helphenstein came out as the artist behind the social media account in 2021 and has since gained around 130,000 followers on Instagram. She launched her own art gallery in Los Angeles in 2016, also publishes The Jerry Report newsletter and co-hosts the podcast Art Smack.

Helphenstein has also collaborated closely with Sotheby’s auction house and other brands like On Running, Ruinart, The Edition Hotel and The Standard Hotel. She is also at work on an executive MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business.

With a flagship Beverly Hills location, the UTA Artist Space showcases the work of globally recognized talent, and also has a new Atlanta office and gallery.
