Tommy Kha's photographs flip the genre of self-portraiture on its head, by substituting the artist's body for 3D printed masks, cardboard cutouts, plaster busts, digital scans, and an endless ensemble of doppelgängers bearing his signature deadpan likeness. "Self-portrait photography has been tied together with identity so much that it's become a synonym for it," he says, "First and foremost, I am interested in how truth is easily dislodged." Growing up queer and Asian in the American South, Kha now uses the camera to control his own representation.”Interview
Co-Production with the Hammer Museum
Each of our exhibitions are headlined by one or more acclaimed guest artists. In addition to having their work featured on billboards throughout Los Angeles, these individuals help raise awareness and increase exposure for other TBC participants. Past guest artists have included Ed Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, Marilyn Minter, Paul McCarthy, Alex Prager, Jack Pearson and Laurie Simmons.
TBC began with a single billboard and has grown to an average of 40 billboards per show. That wouldn't be possible without the help of our generous donors. TBC consists of an all-volunteer staff, so your donations go directly to producing art shows and bringing attention to artists. We are a tax deductible 501c3.Donate
