St. Louis–based artist Kahlil Robert Irving (US, b. 1992) creates complex and layered assemblages of images and sculptures composed of replicas of everyday objects. Mainly working in ceramics, Irving critically engages with the history of the medium and challenges constructs around identity and culture in the United States, specifically questioning the historical conditions of unrecognized racism and anti-Blackness.
