DESCRIPTION

For this performance, artist and performer Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle closes out her solo exhibition The Retrieval by activating the Kentifrican Healer costume on view in the gallery. The healer figure is a retriever for women and children who have been ghosted by society. Through movement, sound, and a call to action, Hinkle conjures up a space for the unnamed and unaccounted for.  

The Retrieval, a solo exhibition by Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, features a large body of works that respond to the disappearance of Black women and female-identifying women due to various abuses and the current human trafficking trade in the Bay Area and beyond. The exhibition is on view at the SFAC Main Gallery from February 16-April 7, 2018. The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
