Wythe Artist Residency – Quenton Stuckey
- GRACE - by an only child
Doors at 7pm
RSVP required email@example.com
Quenton Stuckey is an only child, vocalist, and dance artist based in New York City. Originally from Louisiana, Quenton spent his early years performing in the church. As the only son of a preacher, a great deal of his work explores the ways in which christianity helped to shape his identity. His practice also confronts the complexities of race as well as what it means to be a queer person of color. Comfort, generational trauma, and performed masculinity are present notions he feels most compelled to investigate.
Quenton was most recently featured in Nick Mauss’ “Transmissions” exhibition at the Whitney Museum. He has also worked with choreographer Ryan McNamara at the Guggenheim Museum, Bessie nominated artist Jimmy Robert at the Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, CT, artist Sarah Kinlaw, choreographers Sigrid Lauren and Monica Mirable of Fluct, and more including works at MoMa PS1. In March 2017, he presented his own choreography at the Guggenheim’s Young Collectors Council. Quenton is currently a member of the Rod Rodgers Dance Company.
