I observe how perception and prejudice impact one’s relationship to place, objects, people and their sense of belonging or displacement.
About Basil Kincaid
Basil Kincaid (b. 1986, St. Louis, Missouri) is a post-disciplinary artist who honors and evolves traditional practices through quilting, collaging, photography, installation and performance. With found, salvaged and donated materials, Kincaid employs resourcefulness and freedom of imagination as critical components in the liberation of spirit.
Kincaid studied drawing and painting at Colorado College, graduating in 2010. Kincaid has exhibited works with Hauser & Wirth, Mindy Solomon, Kravets Wehby, Kavi Gupta, Carl Kostyal and others. In 2019, Kincaid debuted a first museum performance, “The Release,” at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis MO.
In 2020 Kincaid received the Regional Arts Commission Fellowship. In 2021, Kincaid became a United States Artist Fellow and joined the Collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. In 2022, Kincaid debuted new quilt works in both the Legacy Russell-curated show, “The New Bend” at Hauser & Wirth’s New York and Los Angeles locations, and the Ekow Eshun-curated exhibition, “New African Portraiture” at the Kunsthalle Krems in Austria. Kincaid also produced a ceremonial installation at Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis, wrapping a Manuel Neri figure in a quilt entitled “Take Me Home” just days after Neri’s passing. Thus far in 2023, Kincaid has exhibited “Dancing the Wind Walk”, a semi-permanent fabric monument during Frieze LA, with support from the Art Production Fund.
