About

In her Artist Lab Residency at 18th Street Arts Center, her exhibition Kentifrica Is: Re-imaging Collective Geographies will explore diaspora as a space of cultural invention. Her practice fluctuates between collaborations and participatory projects with alternative gallery spaces within various communities to projects that are intimate and based upon her private experiences in relationship to historical events and contexts. Her artwork and experimental writing has been exhibited and performed at The Studio Museum in Harlem, NY, Project Row Houses in Houston, TX, The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, CA, The Museum of Art at The University of New Hampshire, The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco and What If The World Gallery in Capetown, South Africa. Hinkle was the youngest artist to participate in the multi-generational biennial Made in LA 2012.
