The 2019 SECA Art Award exhibition book features three Bay Area artists: Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Sahar Khoury, and Marlon Mullen.
Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle’s interdisciplinary practice explores “the historical present,” her term for the persistent residue of history in contemporary life. Sahar Khoury transforms discarded materials into sculptures animated by freewheeling experimentation and personal narrative. Marlon Mullen takes magazine covers as his primary source imagery, translating them into vividly painted abstractions. These awardees were selected from among sixteen finalists.
