About the Judge
Kevin Sipp is a fine artist, scholar and curator with expertise in printmaking, painting, sculpture and multimedia installation.
His foundational aesthetic focus examines the spiritual, political, social, and historical influence of African-derived culture in the world, often making references to African Myth, Afro-Futurism, Cultural Identity, Colonial History, past and contemporary music, politics and comics.
Sipp, who is also a poet and speaker, is the cultural affairs and public art coordinator for the city of Atlanta, a curator at the Hammonds House, and a teaching artist at the High Museum.
The world has been pushed to the brink of irrevocable damage that only swift and drastic action can avert. Burning fossil fuels, deforestation, and industrial processes have significantly increased the amount of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere, trapping heat and warming the planet.
This human activity is considered by many scientists and researchers as the primary cause of modern-day climate change.
Artists in this exhibition have an opportunity to raise awareness about this crisis, advocate for policy reform, and empower and inspire viewers to take action in their own way.
