Sanford Biggers is a visual artist producing paintings, sculptures, immersive installations and video. Biggers also creates multimedia musical performances with his collective Moon Medicin. He combines each of these media into compelling, sensual and witty works that are platforms from which to discuss challenging and far-ranging topics such as hip hop, Buddhism, politics, identity, pop culture, and American and art history while offering new perspectives and associations for established symbols. He has shown his work in venues worldwide including Brooklyn Museum, Sculpture Center, and MASS MoCA, and participated in group shows at the Tate Britain and Modern, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Studio Museum in Harlem, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, and institutions in China, Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Russia. His work is also in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Walker Art Center, the Smithsonian Instituion’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. Born and raised in LA, Biggers currently lives and works in NYC, where he is the Director of Columbia University’s Sculpture Program and an Associate Professor.
