Trenton Doyle Hancock is internationally known for his evolving, absurdist narrative of the battle between good and evil—executed across a wide variety of media that includes painting, collage, sculpture, print and the performing arts. In 2000, he was one of the youngest artists ever to be included in the Whitney Biennial, and he continues to exhibit worldwide. His work will be featured in Room, CCAD’s project space, and he will be the featured Visiting Artist Series speaker on Feb. 21 (coinciding withteh opening of the WALL exhibition in the main Canzani Center Gallery).

Hancock's singular storytelling vision is expressed through works that incorporate text, drawing, collaged paper, plastic, felt, fur, and paint to create a densely layered collision of symbols and visual tropes. Hancock’s work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, the Netherlands; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Raised in Paris, Texas, he currently lives and works in Houston.

Also on view in the Canzani Center Gallery is WALL, Feb. 21–April 4

Gallery Hours: Monday, closed; Tuesday–Friday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday, noon–5 p.m.

Room is a project room in CCAD’s Canzani Center Gallery. Throughout the year, it hosts small exhibitions, projects, and video installations that flow new information into the CCAD exhibitions program—sometimes complementing the main gallery show, other times standing alone.
