" It may be an illustration of a machine we need to build or a society that will eventually exist" - April Bey 
April Bey was born and raised in the Bahamas (New Providence). She lives and works in Los Angeles as a visual artist and professor at Glendale College. Bey's interdisciplinary work is an introspective and social critique of American and Bahamian culture, feminism, generational theory, social media, Afro-futurism, Afro-surrealism, post-colonialism and constructions of race within supremacist systems.
All of Bey's work are extremely demanding in terms of handiwork but also in the sourcing of the materials used. In fact, the artist makes a point of sourcing as much as possible from black women-owned businesses.
Having already participated in major contemporary art fairs such as Armory Show (2021), Frieze (2022), Art Basel (2021 and 2022) and Untitled (2020 & 2021 top booth), the artist presents a wealth of artistic experience in terms of group and solo exhibitions. April Bey's work is already in numerous public collections such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) (2022), 21C Museum (2022), Escalette Collection - Chapman University (2021), METRO Los Angeles (2020), Fullerton College Art Gallery (2020), Lancaster CA Museum of Art and History (2020), Inter-American Development Bank (2020), Self-Help Graphics (2020), Center for Contemporary Printmaking (2019), The Current Bahamas Tradewinds (2018), California African American Museum (2015), National Art Gallery of the Bahamas (2014).
