Visiting Artist Lecture: Trenton Doyle Hancock

The University of Tennessee School of Art will host artist Trenton Doyle Hancock as part of our visiting lecture series this November. 

Trenton Doyle Hancock was born in 1974 in Oklahoma City, OK. Raised in Paris, TX, Hancock earned his BFA from Texas A&M University, Commerce, and his MFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, Philadelphia. For almost two decades,  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. The recipient of numerous awards,  Hancock lives and works in Houston, TX.

Hancock’s work is in the permanent collections of several prestigious museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; the Studio Museum, New York, NY; Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA;  Dallas Museum of Art, TX; the Menil Collection, Houston, TX; Morgan Library & Museum, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth, TX; Akron Art Museum, OH; Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, The Netherlands; and il Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea, Trento, Italy.

This event is sponsored by the UT School of Art Programming Committee.  See more about this event and other upcoming School of Art events.
