Rodney Ewing: Notes On A History
Oakland-based artist Rodney Ewing (Headlands Artist in Residence, 2019) delves into a host of references to explore the topic of race in his new body of work, Notes on a History. Illuminating personal stories and memories, he draws on the Green-Book, the story of H. Box Brown (a slave who shipped himself to freedom), and recent accounts of state-supported violence against African Americans. Ewing's installations and works on paper chronicle how the Black Body has had to evolve to move through physical, social, and psychological spaces in the United States, and the continued resilience and defiance required to survive.

Kori Newkirk
For Kori Newkirk (Headlands Artist in Residence, 2019), "the idea dictates the material." Pony beads, hair pomade, bicycle tires, tin cans, his own sweat and saliva-the artist has used them all. Whimsical yet thought-provoking, his sculptures and two-dimensional visual works transform everyday materials to elucidate the human condition, delving especially into ideas of racialized identity and their connection to place. During his residency, he will investigate the environment in and around Headlands, incorporating locally found objects to create a new work.
