Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Assistant Professor of Painting

  • 338 Kroeber Hall

Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle is an interdisciplinary visual artist, writer and performer. Her practice fluctuates between collaborations and participatory projects with alternative gallery spaces within various communities to projects that are intimate and based upon her private experiences in relationship to historical events and contexts. A term that has become a mantra for her practice is the “Historical Present,” as she examines the residue of history and how it affects our contemporary world perspective.

Jill Miller, Assistant Professor

Jill Miller is a visual artist who collaborates with individuals and communities in the form of public interventions, workshops, and installation art. She often creates non-vital public services, using the opportunity to point the finger at something lacking in our culture. For example, The Milk Truck, an emergency breastfeeding advocacy vehicle, called out establishments who were hassling or harassing breastfeeding mothers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Often humorous, her work straddles the line between going too far and not going far enough. She intentionally uses this strategy to open questions about difficult subject matter. In past work, she searched for Bigfoot in the Sierra Nevada, inserted herself into the art historical work of John Baldessari, and became a private investigator who performed surveillance on art collectors. Born in Illinois, she received her MFA in from University of California, Los Angeles and her BA from University of California, Berkeley, in English. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, and collected in public institutions worldwide including CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo in Madrid and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
