Trenton Doyle Hancock with Cleveland Museum of Art


Cleveland Museum of Art

One of the youngest artists in history to be featured in the Whitney Biennial exhibitions (2000 and 2002), visual artist Trenton Doyle Hancock was born in 1974 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and raised in Paris, Texas. Quickly gaining international recognition for his imaginative, multi-media art, Hancock was included in the prestigious Istanbul Biennial and Lyon Biennial, both in 2003. His prints, drawings, and collaged felt paintings work has also been exhibited at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami.

The Joyce Awards supported The Cleveland Museum of Art’s presentation of an installation by Hancock that is on display now through April 4, 2004. Trenton Doyle Hancock: Moments in Mound History includes a site-specific wall drawing, wallpaper, watercolors, drawings, etchings, and a new painting, all of which chronicle Hancock’s ongoing, semi-autobiographical battle with elemental and cultural forces.

Founded in 1913 and opened to the public in 1916, The Cleveland Museum of Art is among the finest comprehensive art museums in the United States. Its highly select holdings of some 40,000 objects encompass a wide range of cultures and span 5,000 years of human history.
