Biography

American Artist legally changed their name in 2013, issuing a direct challenge to the pervasive stereotypes of whiteness and maleness attached to the term. Within their practice, virtual identity, algorithmic justice, and Blackness are often at the forefront. “My Blue Window,” their critically acclaimed solo exhibition at the Queens Museum in 2019, used installations and a specially designed app to reveal how algorithmic tools used by police to predict criminal activity work to reinforce anti-Black racism. Artist’s thoughtful and provocative explorations have also been exhibited at MoMA PS1, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Artist is featured in The Artsy Vanguard 2020.
