Clifford Prince King
Clifford Prince King documents his intimate relationships in traditional, everyday settings that evoke his experiences as a queer Black man. In these instances, communion begins to morph into an offering of memory. In this way, he honors and celebrates the reality of layered personhood. King has exhibited his photographs nationally and internationally. Public collections holding his work include the Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Arts, and Minneapolis Institute of Art. King was runner-up for the Robert Giard Emerging Artist Grant in 2020 and among The British Journal of Photography‘s “Ones to Watch” in 2022. He has recently exhibited work at Jeffrey Dietch Gallery (Los Angeles), Higher Pictures (New York City), Leslie Lohman Museum (New York City), MASS MoCA, Marc Selwyn Gallery (Beverly Hills), and Stars Gallery (Los Angeles). Publications carrying King’s images as commissioned work and in features include Aperture, Dazed, i-D, T Magazine, The New York Times, and Vogue.
