Jimmie Durham is an American-born activist, sculptor and writer. The artist creates sculptures, installations and painted collages out of found objects and organic materials. His work is politically-inspired and dedicated to promoting alternative, non-Western modes of thought. We love the multi-dimensionality of Jimmie’s works, both in terms of their physicality and their layers of meaning.
Jimmie spent time as a political activist during the American CIvil Rights Movement. He later moved to…Show more the Swiss city of Geneva, where he studied at L’École des Beaux-Arts.
The artist has exhibited his work throughout the US and abroad. Notable venues include the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, the Museum of Modern Art in Antwerp and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.Show less
