"For MLK, it is not a matter of producing an all-embracing or militant commentary on art and the world but quite the contrary—to update existential territories, processes through which emancipation becomes possible."
Stéphanie Moisdon
Born 1984 in New York City, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy lives and works in Los Angeles and Paris. Embracing the spirit of collaboration as a means to expand knowledge and skills, the breadth of techniques and references used across Matthew Lutz-Kinoy's practice are the result of many collaborative ventures. Where his ceramics are influenced by working with artists in Europe and Brazil, his large-scale paintings often installed like backdrops, tapestries, wall panels or suspended ceilings assert matters of pleasure, color, intimacy, motion, as fundamental. Lutz-Kinoy's work looks through a history of representation from the rococo to orientalism to abstract expressionism; challenging what constitutes the inside and the outside of the arts, the social and the self.
At the core of Lutz-Kinoy's practice is performance. Influenced by histories of queer and collaborative practice as well as his background in theatre and choreography, his live work explores the interplay of narratives that are created and constructed between individuals and social spaces.
His work has been shown in international solo exhibitions: The Kitchen, New York and Dia, Beacon (2023); Mennour, Paris (2022); Cranford Collection, London (2022); Art Basel Parcours, Basel (2022); Mendes Wood DM, São Paulo (2022), Vigliano Biellese (2021), Brussels and New York (2019); Museum Frieder Burda | Salon Berlin, Berlin (2021); Vleeshal, Middelburg (2018) ; Centre d'édition Contemporaine, Geneva (2018); Consortium Museum, Dijon (2018); Fitzpatrick Gallery, Paris (2018)...
