Virtual Visiting Artist Talk: Clintel Steed

Virtual Visiting Artist Talk: Clintel Steed

Clintel Steed will do an artist talk via zoom. This event is free and open to the public. Please register in advance to secure your spot as a private Zoom link will be provided prior to the start of the event.

Clintel Steed (b. 1977, Salt Lake City) received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his MFA from Indiana University, and completed Advanced Studies at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture. His work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, most recently Clintel Steel: Endymion at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, New York; Emoji Show at Klaus von Nichtsagend, New York, and So Much, So Little, All At Once at Regina Rex, New York, among others. He is the recipient of the John Koch Award from the National Academy of Arts and Letters, and recent press includes Hyperallergic, Artcritical, and The New York Sun.

Steed’s political subject matter is an important component of his work. His images are drawn from the recent Baltimore uprisings, the war in Afghanistan and a host of other charged political events. Steed’s paintings explore and expose the oppressive power structures that constrict his America, considering socioeconomic immobility, racial prejudice and the experience of being black in this country. As he puts it, reflecting on his childhood and upbringing, “the battle between good and evil, heaven and hell was preached all the time. This struggle is still within me, the lust for money and the battle for power. Painting these ideas and icons, in a way, helps me meditate upon the emotions they conjure in a more contemplative way.”
