      McKnight Visual Artist Discussion Series: Andria Hickey, Pao Houa Her, Caroline Kent

      The McKnight Visual Artist Fellowships are awarded annually to eight established Minnesota-based artists. This discussion series pairs a nationally-recognized art critic or curator with two McKnight Visual Artist Fellows and offers attendees an opportunity to learn more about the fellowship recipients as well as how their work intersects with broader contemporary art ideas and concerns.

      ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
      Pao Houa Her’s photographic practice deals with ideas of desire within her Hmong community.

      Caroline Kent is a visual artist whose practice is a constant pursuit of concretizing an abstract language that speaks beyond the corridor of a traditional painting practice to engage subjects related to the moving image as well as the written word.

      Andria Hickey is a senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland. She previously served as curator for the Public Art Fund, where she organized outdoor installations by leading contemporary artists including Danh Vō, Hank Willis Thomas, and Oscar Tuazon. Prior to that, Hickey was a curator at Art in General, a curatorial assistant for contemporary art at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, and a curatorial fellow in visual arts at the Walker Art Center. She completed her MA in art history at Concordia University in Montreal, and her writing has been published in a wide variety of journals and exhibition catalogs.

      This series is funded by the McKnight Foundation and administered by the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
