ABOUT THE PROJECT

Kenyatta A.C Hinkle is the Artist Lab Resident in the 18th Street Main Gallery during January-March. The project involves developing collaborative research and an educational archive for a contested place called Kentifrica.

Kentifrica started out as a mix of Kentucky and parts of West Africa where her ancestors originated from, but grew to become something that extended beyond a personal exploration into a project that challenges identity and who is in charge of writing history. She has been working on this project for the past 7 years and collaborates with people from all walks of life to make Kentifrican food, hairstyles, instruments, dance performances, art installations and panel discussions. The products of these workshops will inform Kenyatta’s exhibition at 18th Street. Stick around on February 25 for a reception and panel at 6pm. No need to RSVP for the drop-in workshops, but please make a free RSVP for the panel and reception here.
