EJHillEJ Hill, RI '19 is an artist whose practice incorporates painting, writing, installation, and performance in ways that seek to elevate bodies and amplify voices that have long been rendered invisible and inaudible by oppressive social structures. ​Hill’s work has been presented domestically and internationally. He is the recipient of a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists award (2018); an Art Matters Foundation fellowship (2017); the William H. Johnson Prize (2016); and a Fellowship for Visual Artists from the California Community Foundation (2015). In this talk, Hill investigates the roller coaster as a symbol for the need for foundational structures, systems of support, and sources of uplift for those most vulnerable to homegrown American terrorism.
