Basil Kincaid (b. 1986, St. Louis, MO, US) is a post-disciplinary artist based in St. Louis, Missouri who constructs, contemplates and revises self-imposed and conditioned limitations and explores their fixity. Through quilting, assemblage, collage, photography, installation and performance - done with found, salvaged and donated materials - Kincaid discards social mores while drafting alternative cultural fabrics. With an improvisational and community-oriented approach, resourcefulness and freedom of imagination emerge as critical components in the liberation of spirit. The work in this exhibition is a quilted piece. Kincaid’s adoption of quilting as an aesthetic technique is inspired by his own heritage, now acting as a quasi-metaphysical collaboration with his ancestors, allowing him to participate in a legacy that extends both backwards and forward in time. Kincaid studied drawing and painting at Colorado College, graduating in 2010. Kincaid has exhibited works with such galleries as Kavi Gupta, Chicago, IL, Mindy Solomon in Miami, FL, Kravets Wehby in New York, NY, Carl Kostyal in London, UK and Stockholm, Sweden, and others. Kincaid was the inaugural Artist in Residence at JP Morgan and has four works in their permanent collection. Kincaid attended The Fountainhead Residency in Miami, FL in 2017. In 2014-15, Kincaid was the inaugural recipient of the Arts Connect International, Artist in Residence Program in Boston, MA. In 2019, Kincaid debuted his first museum performance, The Release, at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis, MO. In 2020, Kincaid received the Regional Arts Commission Fellowship. In 2021, Kincaid became a United States Artist Fellow. Kincaid's forthcoming exhibitions in 2021 include Realms of Refuge, Kavi Gupta, Chicago, IL, and three solo shows, at Galleria Leyendecker, Tenerife, Canary Islands; Galleria Poggiali, Milan, Italy; and Kostyal Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden. He is represented by Mindy Solomon Gallery in Miami.
