The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection Set To Partner With Inglewood-Based Residency Art Gallery On Contemporary Exhibit Titled “Continuum”
The Exhibition Serves As An Addition To The Current Kinsey Collection At SoFi Stadium.
Brought to Greater Los Angeles by the Kroenke Family Foundation, The Kinsey Collection Is Now Extended Through March 2023 in Partnership with JPMorgan Chase.
Inglewood, CA (July 18, 2022) – Hollywood Park and SoFi Stadium announced today the extension of The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection exhibition through March 2023, enhanced by additional new art and historical objects from the renowned collection. As part of the extension, The Kinsey Collection announced its partnership with Inglewood-based Residency Art Gallery, to launch “Continuum,” a new exhibition featuring Inglewood and greater Los Angeles-based contemporary artists. The first of its kind arts and culture initiative is brought to SoFi Stadium by the Kroenke Family Foundation, The Bernard and Shirley Kinsey Foundation for Arts and Education, and the Hollywood Park Foundation in partnership with JPMorgan Chase.
Continuum, curated by Khalil Kinsey (Chief Curator, The Kinsey Collection) and Rick Garzon (Founder/Director, Residency Art Gallery), aims to contextualize individuals’ experiences and progression within the scope of history, collective consciousness, and community uplift. The group show will focus on new works from over twenty artists of color and will be displayed on the second level mezzanine of SoFi Stadium in conjunction with the Kinsey Collection. Participating artists include Genevieve Gaignard, Patrick Martinez, Jaimie Milner, Lyndon Barrois Sr, Texas Isaiah, Samuel Levi Jones, Yasmine Nasser Diaz and more. Continuum will open to the public beginning this August as part of SoFi Stadium’s tour program, with extended hours allowing for even more accessibility to the local community.
“We are proud to work alongside Rick and Residency Art Gallery, JP Morgan Chase, and the Kroenke Family Foundation to highlight some of the incredible artists that are making significant contributions to arts and culture. Understanding our history and seeing our own reflections in art inspires and empowers us all and is critical to our shared experience and progress. Displaying the exhibition in Inglewood is extremely important to us because it invites the community to connect with their own stories of strength, brilliance and beauty,” said the Kinsey family.
A key component of the Kinsey Collection exhibition has been its dynamic community engagement initiative, working with Inglewood and Los Angeles area schools, as well as local non-profit organizations. The various educational programs include field trips, school visits, art education, teacher workshops, guest lectures and more. Since opening in February, the exhibit has welcomed nearly 4,000 students and over 12,000 guests connecting the South Los Angeles community through educational programs and workshops.
“Inglewood has a rich cultural history and once again it is fast becoming one of the most influential communities in America. We are honored to support making the Kinsey Collection accessible to the surrounding communities of this iconic location. It’s vital that we tell the stories represented in this wonderful collection and support our community’s education efforts by connecting our country’s history with its future,” said, Rick Barragan, managing director and market director for Los Angeles, J.P. Morgan Private Bank.
The collection benefits the new Hollywood Park Foundation, a nonprofit organization that launched at the opening of the Kinsey African American Art and History Collection in February. The foundation develops and supports youth programs focused on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) education, and health and wellness. The Hollywood Park Foundation assists local youth with education resources, healthy eating information, safe spaces for physical play, as well as other education, and health and wellness initiatives geared towards supporting youth.
“We welcome JPMorgan Chase as the presenting partner of the award-winning Kinsey African American Art and History Collection at SoFi Stadium. With their generous support of the Kroenke Family Foundation and the Hollywood Park Foundation, we can extend this important exhibition with an enhanced experience from Residency Art Gallery to present Continuum and celebrate African American achievement,” said Jason Gannon, managing director, SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park.
The Kinsey Collection is a temporary installation featured alongside Hollywood Park’s art program. The Hollywood Park art program provides cultural enrichment and connectivity for the local community through various works and methods of art. Already on display in Hollywood Park’s retail space, the largest urban mixed-use mega development under construction in the Western United States, are murals by three distinctive Los Angeles-based artists – Calida Rawles, Geoff McFetridge, and Eve Fowler, with more to be announced soon. The program also stretches across SoFi Stadium and YouTube Theater and includes works by Ned Kahn, Sandeep Mukherjee, and Bhavna Mehta. Forthcoming in the retail area are two bronze sculptures by Alison Saar, and a second Inglewood location for Residency Art Gallery, scheduled to open in early 2023.
As a part of this extension, visitors will be able to tour the Kinsey Collection inside SoFi Stadium, plus experience the entire stadium, including field and team locker room access, excluding event days. For more information visit SofiStadium.com/Kinsey.
