Nayland Blake's mixed-media work in sculpture and installation has been variously described as disturbing, provocative, elusive, tormented, sinister, hysterical, brutal, and tender. Often incorporating themes of masochism, it also manifests two other major threads: his biracial heritage and what he calls his pansexuality. Blake was included in the 1991 Whitney Biennial and the controversial Black Male: Representations of Masculinity in Contemporary American Art exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1994. His work is in the collections of SFMOMA, the Whitney Museum, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. He chairs the International Photography Center -- Bard MFA program, and he lives and works in Brooklyn.
