From Frieze New York 2023, we speak to American artist Sanford Biggers, whose practice encompasses a range of mediums including films, installations, video, drawing, sculpture and performance.

With his work, the artist challenges our given relationships to history with its established symbols and beliefs, combining Afro-American traditions and aesthetics with Japanese symbolism, Central European references with contemporary urban experiences and Italian technique with the rhythms of Hip Hop music.

Biggers is represented by MASSIMODECARLO at Frieze New York 2023.
