Vagner Mendonça Whitehead PKN

Vagner Mendonça Whitehead is an artist, wordsmith, educator, and arts administrator. Through traditional and newer media art-making, curatorial projects, and creative writing, his practice displays intersections of personal experiences, histories, geo-locations, languages, and found artefacts. His artworks manifest themselves in group and solo exhibitions in galleries and museums, as well as film and video festivals, nationally and internationally. His writings unravel similar media/visual encounters in the form of critical and poetic essays.  As professor and chair of the Department of Visual Arts at Texas Woman’s University, Vagner aims to empower traditionally under-represented art students and scholars in higher education. @vagnerwhitehead
