AMT Visiting Artists Lecture Series: Trent Doyle Hancock

6:15 p.m.

Trenton Doyle Hancock was born in Oklahoma City and raised in Paris, Texas. He earned his BFA at Texas A&M University and received an MFA from the Tyler School of Art. Hancock’s prints, drawings, and collaged felt paintings work together to tell the story of the Mounds, mythical creatures that are the tragic protagonists of the artist’s unfolding narrative. Hancock transforms traditionally formal decisions—like the use of color, language, and pattern—into opportunities to create new characters, develop sub-plots, and convey symbolic meaning. The artist was featured in the 2000 and 2002 Whitney Biennial exhibitions, one of the youngest artists ever to participate. His work has been the subject of one-person exhibitions at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Savannah College of Art and Design, the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami.
