With more urgency than a headline, Titus Kaphar’s artworks capture the spirit of social justice and change in America today (exemplified in his TIME cover portrait of the Ferguson protests). Named a 2018 MacArthur Fellow for “highlighting the lack of representation of people of color in the canon of Western art with works that deconstruct the literal and visual structure of the artwork,” Kaphar’s art and talks expose racism, inequality, and a criminal justice system that is anything but just. In all his work, Kaphar speaks to the most vital discussions happening around race, diversity, and reconciliation in the U.S.  He is the distinguished recipient of the Gwendolyn Knight and Jacob Lawrence Fellowship as well as the 2015 Creative Capital Award and 2016 Rauschenberg Artist as Activist Fellowship. His work has been included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the New Britain Museum of American Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, and the Brooklyn Museum, as well as in solo and group exhibitions at Savannah College of Art and Design, the Studio Museum in Harlem (where he was Artist in Residence), the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery and the Seattle Art Museum. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Kaphar lives and works in New Haven, Connecticut and New York. He received an MFA from the Yale School of Art and a BFA from San Jose State University.
