Artist Bio

Kahlil Joseph (b. 1981, Seattle, WA) is a Los Angeles-based American artist and filmmaker best known for his large-scale video installations (BSFF12, BSFF14, BSFF17). His most recent and ongoing project, BLKNWS, is a two-channel fugitive newscast that blurs the lines between art, journalism, entrepreneurship, and cultural critique. His work is held by museums and private collectors across the world.

BLKNWS premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival with screenings at select theaters nationwide. It was a cornerstone project of the fifth iteration of the Hammer Museum’s biennale exhibition Made in LA 2020: a version, with satellite broadcasts in predominantly Black-owned
businesses and civic centers throughout Los Angeles. BLKNWS was originally incubated at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University through roundtable discussions with faculty, staff, and
students as part of a 2018-2019 Presidential Residency on the Future of Arts.

Joseph is the recipient of the 2021 Herb Alpert Award in the Arts for Film/Video, and a 2016 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship. In 2019 he received a VIA Production | Acquisition Grant to support the international debut of BLKNWS at the 58th Venice Biennale,
and in 2016 he was nominated for an Emmy award for his co-direction of Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade.

Joseph currently serves as the artistic director of The Underground Museum, a pioneering independent art museum, exhibition space and community hub in Los Angeles that he co-founded with his sister-in-law, Karon Davis, and his late brother, the visionary artist an curator Noah Davis.
