Dread Scott makes revolutionary art to propel history forward. He first received national attention in 1989 when his art became the center of controversy over its use of the American flag. President Bush (the first) declared his artwork “disgraceful” and the entire US Senate denounced it as they passed legislation to “protect the flag.” His work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, PS1/MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, and at the DeBeyerd Center for Contemporary Art in the Netherlands. He has been awarded a Creative Capital Foundation grant, a Mid-AtlanticNEA Regional Fellowship in Photography and New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships in Sculpture as well as in Performance Art/Multidisciplinary Art. His work is in the collection of the Whitney Museum, The New Museum of Contemporary Art and the Arkon Art Museum. He works in a range of media including installation, photography, screen printing, video and performance.
