Sanford Biggers' work is an interplay of narrative, perspective, and history that speaks to current social, political, and economic happenings while examining the contexts that bore them. His diverse practice positions him as a collaborator with the past through explorations of often-overlooked cultural and political narratives from American history.

For his MLK Scholar presentation, Biggers' will discuss his contemporary art practice highlighting seminal artworks and recent projects. His extraordinary body of work encompasses painting, sculpture, film, textiles, installation, and performance, employing a wide variety of media such as antique quilts, bronze, marble, sequins, vinyl, and sound.
