KORI NEWKIRK


Kori Newkirk (born in 1970) is celebrated multidisciplinary Afro-american artist whose conceptual practice is based on transforming modest materials into elegant sculptural installations and mixed media works. He may investigate on his african roots using pony beads or hair pomade to create works that, beyond their appearance, make us think about racial questions. He has had solo exhibition at LAXART in Los Angeles and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego. Newkirk’s work is in the collections of the Art Institute and the museum of contemporary art in Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles or the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
