Virtual Exhibition Video: Kahlil Robert Irving in Conversation with Karen Jenkins-Johnson

Earlier this year, Jenkins Johnson Gallery presented Mixed Messages (Streets & Screens) AOL + Lottery, Kahlil Robert Irving’s first solo presentation in San Francisco.

Mixed Messages (Streets & Screens) AOL + Lottery revels in all the different media Irving employs within his practice, from the digital space of technology and social media to the use of materials to represent aspects of the built world around us.  Mixed Messages (Streets & Screens) AOL + Lottery takes place under a digitally rendered sky that reflects on the ground that we walk, the fences that blur the understanding of place, and the opportunities for agency in the here and the now.

Kahlil Robert Irving is an artist born in San Diego, California, in 1992, currently living and working in St. Louis. He attended the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Art, Washington University in St. Louis (MFA Fellow, 2017) and the Kansas City Art Institute (BFA, Art History and Ceramics, 2015).

His work has been included in exhibitions at the I8 Gallery, Reykjavik, Iceland; Hiestand Galleries, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio; Mathew Marks Gallery, Los Angeles; and the Law Warschaw Gallery, Macalester College, Saint Paul, among others. In 2018, Irving completed his first major solo exhibition at Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts in Middletown, Connecticut titled Street Matter – Decay & Forever / Golden Age and was accompanied by a full-color catalogue with essays and an interview.
