Devin Kenny is complicated.

Devin Kenny is complicated.

The performance artist/musician figures the best way to tackle big issues is with a big toolbox. As such, MINT, given its multidisciplinary approach, is an ideal spot for Kenny to stop on his way through his native Midwest.

A Devin Kenny visit is likely to include video, writing, visual art, spoken word, movement and music - and the music draws from hip-hop, electronic and underground styles.

The artist is a Chicago native who studied at UCLA, where he began to unpack ideas about art history and popular culture (the artist recently relocated to New York). Social media tropes, technology, politics, human intellect and emotion, corporate culture and consumerism - none are necessarily exempt from Kenny commentary, whether via an art installation blending inspirational sayings and degraded images of junk food, cleverly conceived and edited video or a song with obscure art references.
