Faculty workshop | Criticism + Value - VI: Wayne Hodge

This year, the Criticism + Value series continues the discussion of criticism and value through a series of intimate discussions about the work and practice of national and international artists. The series continues with a conversation between host Ernest A. Bryant III, L.P.I., and American artist, Wayne Hodge.

Wayne Hodge’s work combines elements of collage, performance and photography. His practice explores the relationship between history, media and fantasies of race and desire. His imagery is drawn from media, historical and science fiction sources. 

Wayne Hodge is an American artist based in New York. He received his M.F.A. from Rutgers University and attended the Whitney Independent Study Program and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. His work has been shown nationally at The Bronx Museum, MoMA P.S.1, and internationally in Germany, Brazil and China. He was featured in 'The Radical Presence' at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, The Walker Arts Center and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Other exhibitions include 'The Shadows Took Shape' at the Studio Museum in Harlem, and "(an)other" at Practice Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. In 2017, his solo project Skin Like Distant Stars, was shown at Hallwalls in Buffalo, NY. Recent Exhibitions include Mothership: Voyage Into Afrofuturism at the Oakland Museum of California, and Ascension of Black Stillness CEPA Gallery, Buffalo, NY.
