Visual artists Kenya (Robinson) and Doreen Garner bring their show #trashDay to Clocktower Radio. #trashDay elevates the vernacular of urban fiction, reality television, gossip publications, social dance, and fashion, and uses it as a point of departure for satire and social commentary.
Kenya (Robinson) is a community-taught artist from Gainesville, Florida. An aficionado of all things blonde, she is a past resident of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's WorkSpace Program (2009-2010) and the 2010 Triangle Arts Workshop. Her sculptural work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Aljira and the 60 Wall Street Gallery of Deutsche Bank. In addition, her performances have been featured at Rush Arts Gallery, MoMA PS1, The DUMBO Arts Festival, The Kitchen, The Museum of Modern Art (NYC) as well as the Home Section of the New York Times.
An avid blogger, tumblr-er, and mischievous contributor to the Arts & Culture Section of the Huffington Post, Robinson is also the inaugural resident for Recess Activities' online residency ANALOG and an MFA graduate from the School of Art at Yale University.
