Nina Chanel Abney
Born in Chicago, Illinois in 1982, Nina Chanel Abney lives and works in New York. She earned her MFA in 2007 from the Parsons School of Design, New York, NY. “I’m fascinated by how celebrity news has become not more interesting, but more important than politics. I like to infuse that with race issues,” Abney said, referring to her 2007 solo debut show, Dirty Wash, at New York’s Kravets|Wehby Gallery. Nina Chanel Abney shows at Monique Meloche Gallery through August 23, 2015.
