Renee Cox
Jamaican-American, b. 1960

Deeply concerned with the racial discrepancies in society, the African American artist Renee Cox explores black identity through photography, collage, video, and other media, using the body to displace religious symbols from the white-centric paradigm. "I have a right to reinterpret the Last Supper as Leonardo da Vinci created the Last Supper with people who look like him. . . . It's about me having nothing to hide," the artist has said. Experimenting with freedom of speech and expression, the artist creates works that render gender politics, race, and sexuality aesthetically and politically controversial.
