Kenyatta A.C Hinkle is an interdisciplinary visual artist, writer, and performer who integrates cultural criticism, personal narrative, social practice, and historical research to interrogate structures of power concerning race and representation. Hinkle questions how these structures influence ideas of self through drawing, painting, collage, video, and performance. Hinkle conducts extensive experimentation and play to form several bodies of work simultaneously.
Her work was shown in The Studio Museum in Harlem’s Fore exhibition, and she was the youngest participant in the Made in LA 2012 biennial at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. She was listed on The Huffington Post’s “Black Artists: 30 Contemporary Art Makers Under 40 You Should Know.” Her artwork and performances have been reviewed by Artforum, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times, among others. She was a finalist for the 2013 Los Angeles Artadia Award. Hinkle will be featured in an upcoming article in Transition Magazine, a Harvard University Publication.
