Thanks to Lincoln Hancock for this extensive chronicling of the NC Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill) art scene. Stay tuned for another post or two from him in the coming weeks.
Up next is Steven Frost. Steven lives in Chicago, where he is completing his MFA in Fiber and Material Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Before moving to Chicago, Frost lived in Washington, DC, where he worked for the Corcoran College of Art & Design. Native to rural Vermont, Frost has exhibited his fiber-based objects, drawings, videos and installations across the U.S. His work addresses the cultural and material histories of queer identities. Steven is currently working on a large-scale installation concerning the debris of male aggression with fellow SAIC grad student Jesse Butcher. The installation takes over an unused Chicago storefront and is called Don’t Quit. Suffer Now. Frost is also designing costumes for a film project by George Washington University professor James Huckenpahler. The piece, entitled Exit Strategy, is loosely based on Jack Smith’s unfinished piece, Dracula VS Batman. Frost writes about the Chicago Art Scene and his colleagues at SAIC on his blog, Anyone Can Learn to Paint.
