Artist talk: Transform the quotidian with Tyler Mitchell
Artist talk graphic

Join artist Tyler Mitchell for a gallery talk on his newly opened exhibition at the SCAD Museum of Art. Mitchell will discuss Domestic Imaginaries, his most ambitious exhibition to date. The installation, which features photos innovatively printed on textiles and new “altar” sculptures, articulates an attentiveness to the quieter moments of life and the potential for beauty and transformation in things that may otherwise seem ordinary

This event is free and open to the public.

About the artist
Tyler Mitchell (b. 1995, Atlanta; lives and works in Brooklyn, New York) is a photographer and filmmaker working across many genres to explore and document a new aesthetic of Blackness. In 2018, he made history as the first Black photographer to shoot a cover of American Vogue for Beyoncé’s appearance in the September issue. The following year, a portrait from this series was acquired by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery for its permanent collection. In 2019 Mitchell held his first solo exhibition, I Can Make You Feel Good, at Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam where he showed new photographic and video works including his film Idyllic Space. An iteration of the show traveled to the International Center of Photography in New York in 2020. Mitchell published an eponymous monograph with Prestel Random House in conjunction with the exhibition, further exploring his take on a Black visual utopia.
