Visiting Artist Lecture Trenton Doyle Hancock - September 15th 6PM

Trenton Doyle Hancock uses prints, drawings, collaged-felt paintings, and site-specific
installations, to tell fantastical narrative mythologies. Partly fictional, partly autobiographical,
Hancock draws from personal experience, art historical canons, comics and superheroes, and
pop culture references, resulting in a complex cast of characters and plots addressing universal
concepts of light and dark, good and evil, and the grey territory between.

Hancock was born in Oklahoma City (1974) and raised in Paris, Texas. He earned his BFA
from Texas A&M University and his MFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University,
Philadelphia. Exhibition highlights include the 2000 and 2002 Whitney Biennial exhibitions,
Mind of the Mound: Critical Mass at MASS MoCA (North Adams, MA, 2019), and Contemporary
Focus: Trenton Doyle Hancock at the Menil Collection (Houston, TX, 2019). Hancock’s work is in
the permanent collections of several museums, including: MoMA, NY; Whitney Museum, NY;
The Met, NY; SFMOMA, CA; Detroit Institute of Arts, MI; and MFA Houston, TX. Hancock lives and
works in Houston, Texas.
