Trenton Doyle Hancock Lecture
February 19, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Trenton Doyle Hancock, artist, will present a Paula G. Manship Endowed Lecture at the LSU College of Art & Design at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February 19, 2020, in the LSU Design Building Auditorium (room 103).
For almost two decades, Trenton Doyle Hancock has been constructing his own fantastical narrative that continues to develop and inform his prolific artistic output. Part fictional, part autobiographical, Hancock’s work pulls from his own personal experience, art historical canon, comics and superheroes, pulp fiction, and myriad pop culture references, resulting in a complex amalgamation of characters and plots possessing universal concepts of light and dark, good and evil, and all the grey in between. Hancock’s work is in the permanent collections of several prestigious museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
