Artist Talk: Todd Gray in conversation with Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle

SEE EVENT DETAILS
MoAD is pleased to present an evening with Todd Gray in an intimate conversation with fellow artist Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle. In this program, Gray allows greater insight into his past and how his specific positionality growing up in Los Angeles, amid rock and pop icons, provided a framework to grapple with the implications of mental colonialism. In recognition of homogeneity and dominant culture, Gray has set out to question, problematize, and recontextualize the act of viewing in his artistic practice. This program will include a wine reception, and is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Todd Gray: My Life in the Bush with MJ & Iggy.
Todd Gray lives and works in Los Angeles and Ghana. He received both his BFA and MFA from the California Institute of theArts.

Performance works have been presented at institutions such as the Roy & Edna Disney Cal/Arts Theater, REDCAT, Los Angeles, Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, and the Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles. He was the recipient of a Rockefeller Foundation Grant in 2016.
