Bentley Brown is a multidisciplinary artist, curator, and doctoral fellow at The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU. His research and curatorial work explores the pioneering role of Black artists and Black creative spaces within New York City’s contemporary art movements of the late 1960s through the mid-1980s. In his artistic practice, inspired by African American cultural production, expressionist approaches to artistic process, and the desert landscape of his native Phoenix, Brown uses the mediums of canvas, found objects, photo-collage, and film to explore themes of Black identity, cosmology, and American interculturalism.
