Caitlin Cherry (b. 1987) draws on painting, sculpture and installation in her multifaceted practice, coalescing into articulate and alluring representations of Black femininity.

Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Cindy Ji Hye Kim

Cindy Ji Hye Kim utilizes a rich grayscale vocabulary in iconic representations of the body under duress.
