About the artist

Kennedy Yanko x Masego

Kennedy Yanko (b. 1988, St. Louis, MO) is a sculptor and installation artist working in found metal and paint skin. Yanko deploys her materials in ways that explore the limitations of optic vision, underlining the opportunities we miss when looking with eyes alone. Her methods reflect a dual abstract expressionist-surrealist approach that centers the seen and unseen factors that affect, contribute to, and moderate human experience.In 2019, Yanko debuted three solo shows: Highly Worked (Denny Dimin Gallery, New York), Hannah (Kavi Gupta, Chicago), and Before Words (UICA, Grand Rapids), and installed her first public sculpture, 3 WAYS, on the Poydras Corridor in New Orleans in collaboration with The Helis Foundation and the Ogden Museum of Art. In 2020, Yanko debuted two solo shows, Because it’s in my blood (Galleria Poggiali, Milan) and Salient Queens (Vielmetter Gallery, Los Angeles).She was also named Art Forum’s “Critic’s Pick” in 2019 and was featured in 100 Sculptors of Tomorrow published by Thames & Hudson. Most recently, Kennedy Yanko was an Artist in Residence at the Rubell Museum. Her institutional exhibitions include the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (Parallels and Peripheries curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah); University of South Florida (Life During WarTime, curated by Christian Viveros-Faune).Her work is included in notable private museums, namely: The Bunker Artspace, West Palm Beach (Beth Rudin DeWoody), Espacio Tacuari, Buenos Aires (Juan Vergez and Patricia Pearson), and the Rubell Museum, Miami (Don and Mera Rubell). 


Jamaica-born and Virginia-raised, Masego is a self-taught singer, songwriter, rapper, DJ, and saxophonist. As part of his self-described “TrapHouseJazz” genre, he uses playfulness, humor, and suave sensitivities to carve out a sound all his own. Masego’s albums have landed on several Billboard charts and standouts have garnered tens of millions of streams on Spotify. Masego – whose stage name means "blessings and prosperity" in the South African language Tswana – recently contributed a song to the official Judas and the Black Messiahsoundtrack, and his current single “Mystery Lady” is featured as the soundtrack for a new Apple Music campaign that launched in mid-June.
