Timothy Yanick Hunter

Greater Toronto Art 2024

Timothy Yanick Hunter (b. Toronto, Ontario) is a multidisciplinary artist and curator. Synthesizing music, sound, video, and image-making, Hunter’s practice uses a range of visual research strategies to explore the political, cultural, and social life of the Black diaspora. His work often employs bricolage, archival exploration, references, remixing, and citational practices. Hunter is also MOCA’s current Digital Futures Resident, this residency focuses on technology as a connective and even relational tool.

Hunter received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto and has been artist-in-residence at the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto), PADA Studios (Barreiro), and Black Rock Senegal (Dakar). Hunter was included in the 2022 Toronto Biennial of Art and longlisted for the 2022 Sobey Art Award. He has exhibited nationally and internationally at the Center for Art, Research and Alliances (New York), Bamako Encounters – African Biennale of Photography, and in Toronto at Cooper Cole, Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography, and A Space Gallery, among others. Hunter lives and works in Toronto.

For GTA24, Hunter will be contributing a newly-commissioned installation that continues his project True and Functional, an ongoing digital and physical agglomeration of images, texts, video, and sound that explores diasporic history and fragmentation. | yanickhunter
