Phoenix Lindsey-Hall

May 28 – June 28, 2019

Phoenix Lindsey-Hall is a ceramic, photographic and mixed-media artist. Lindsey-Hall’s research-based artwork centers on violence in queer communities. She began working in clay to avoid the specificity inherent in photography and instead consider how the victims, perpetrators and weapons in the hate crimes she was researching seemed exchangeable. While always sensitive to the individuals affected by this type of violence, her work explores a larger cycle of violence. In her latest work, Shame is the First Betrayer, Lindsey-Hall has joined her expertise in ceramics and in photography, screen-printing images sourced from research with the Lesbian Herstory Archives onto porcelain slabs.

Lindsey-Hall holds an MFA in photography from Parsons School of Design at The New School and a BFA in photography from Savannah College of Art. She has shown her artwork at the Pulse Art Fair, Victori + Mo Gallery and the Christopher Stout Gallery, among others, and has had residencies at the NARS Foundation, Aljira Contemporary Art Center and Gallery Aferro.

Lindsey-Hall will use her May 28 to June 28, 2019 fellowship at the Pottery to develop a new body of work.
