John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship

Jefferson Pinder was awarded the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship this Spring of 2017 for his work in art and culture. Over his career, Pinder's practice has not been solitary. This award recognizes Pinder's engagement and dedication to working with communities, as well as the creativity that distinguishes him from his field.

Rapid Pulse, June 1-4 2017

On June 1st,  Jefferson gave a speech at the sixth annual Rapid Pulse festival. In 2013, he presented his three-ringed performance Magical Negro at the second iteration of Rapid Pulse. This year's theme, Retrospect, involved revisiting previous artists from Rapid Pulse's history, so the organizers invited Pinder to be a part of this year's event.
