(b. 1986) Sissòn is a non-binary, self-taught American artist. Their work reveals and questions the experience and social constructs of race, identity, and power. Born in Los Angeles and raised in Glendale, Arizona, Sissòn began their creative curriculum at age seven under the tutelage of their mother, Kimberlin. When she passed away in 2006, Sissòn abandoned their practice for almost a decade. They returned in 2015, creating work that would form the basis of their first solo show, Ivory Gold Slaves. In addition to their solo endeavors, Sissòn has participated in notable group exhibitions, including those at renowned institutions such as the Contemporary African American Museum in Los Angeles and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. They recently had a piece acquired by the Portland Museum of Art as part of their “+ Collection” exhibition.
