Kori Newkirk: 1997–2007
Kori Newkirk is a celebrated multimedia artist whose practice is based on transforming everyday materials into loaded signifiers, making viewers think not only about concepts of African-American culture and beauty, but also about new and ever-changing ways of making art. This exhibition covers the last ten years of his career, illuminating how the varied but interrelated strands of his practice have converged and developed over time.
This exhibition is organized by The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York. This exhibition is generously supported by the Peter Norton Family Foundation on behalf of Eileen Harris Norton, and the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Foundation.
