Justin Randolph Thompson

Justin Randolph Thompson is a sculptor, media artist and musician. He was born in Peekskill, NY in 1979. He lives in Florence, Italy. Thompson’s work explores the meanings of cultural relics and the transformation of their meanings in the context of displacement and diaspora. With an aesthetic practice that is largely collaborative and interdisciplinary, he creates platforms and interprets community as temporary monuments. His work aims to deepen the debate on socio-cultural stratifications and hierarchical organizations by outlining hybrid, non-linear connections in history and in current socio-political discourse through installations and sound performances.
