ONE NIGHT ONLY! This exhibition features new work by Corkey Sinks, created during her residency at Crosstown Arts. Sinks embraces the human tendency to find meaningful patterns within the noise of collective information. Through sculpture, textiles, printed matter, and drawing, Sinks’ works explore American occultism and self-help culture, objects manifested through a struggle to understand the systems we occupy.

Corkey Sinks (b. Dallas, TX) is an artist based in Memphis, TN. She received a BA in Media Studies from the Johnston Center for Integrative Studies at the University of Redlands, CA in 2005 and an MFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012. Sinks has exhibited work throughout the United States and Mexico. In 2015, her book, Demon Baby Project: Events, Coincidences, and Repercussions was published by No Coast. Upcoming exhibitions include Artificial Tide, a solo exhibition at The Packing Plant in Nashville, TN and We gave Our Best, Now the Rest is Up to the Hope Chest, a group show at Im Ersten in Vienna, Austria.
