About the Event

Do you have a story to tell? 

We invite you to come and tell a story, be it one you've created, a personal experience, a story you've heard or read, a piece of folklore, or anything you feel moved to share. Come take part in an upcoming Storytelling Session at the Peter Bullough Foundation with artist-in-residence John Felix Arnold. We believe there's something powerful in hearing your words spoken and in connecting with others. Come to listen or to share at this event.

This event is free and sponsored by the Marion Park Lewis Foundation for the Arts and by First Bank

About the Artist

John Felix Arnold was born in Durham, NC and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.  Having been raised in the American southeast, his practice confronts, reimagines, and transforms mythologies, through a Queer lens, which have influenced and informed societal structures in history and the contemporary world. Arnold weaves together connections, materials, and techniques through multi-disciplinary works which utilize sculptural installation, drawing and mixed media, with ventures into performance, video, and sound. Stemming from a process of contemplation, his alchemical practice embraces materiality, polarity, liminality, catharsis, and interconnectedness always with a sense of seeking and curiosity.

He has exhibited work with SFMOMA, Nasher Museum of Art, B.R.I.C. Arts, The Luggage Store Gallery, Aggregate Space, and Tokyo’s Spes-Lab Experimental Art Space. He is a Duke University Visiting Artist in Residence, a Duke University Grant Awardee, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant Awardee, Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs Grant Awardee, and two time Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant Nominee. His work is in collections of the Duke University Rubenstein Arts Center and Kai Kai Ki Ki Ltd. He has been published in Juxtapoz Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle’s 96 Hours, Hi-Fructose, and is represented in Aggregate Space Gallery’s First 50 Retrospective hardcover publication. He is a contributing writer for the arts publications Coastal Post, and Border Crossing. He holds a BFA from Pratt Institute.
