CVA Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Quinn Alexandria Hunter
July 13 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Quinn Alexandria Hunter is a sculptor and performance artist who completed her MFA work at Ohio University. Born and raised in North Carolina, she works primarily with hair and the African American female body as material. Hunter is interested in the erasure of history from spaces and how the contemporary uses of space impacts the way we, as a culture, see the past. Her work negotiates between the self and the world. Hunter’s practice is contending with the false narratives of a romanticized past and interrupting them by laying a truth next to them. Quinn is a recipient of the I. Hollis Parry/Ann Parry Billman Award (2019), The International Sculpture Center’s 2019 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture (2019), a 2020 Artist in Residence of the Chautauqua School of Visual Art and the 2020-2021 Artist in Residence at Wayne State University.
