Join PCNW for a virtual studio visit with Bay Area photographic artist Jamil Hellu, whose work is currently featured in our exhibition Examining the American Dream. Through arrestingly staged studio-based collaborative portraiture and self-portraiture, Hellu’s work addresses issues of identity relating to race, queer sexuality, and gender. Hellu’s projects have been discussed in publications such as The New York Times, The Guardian, The Advocate, and VICE. His work was included in the latest revision of Art & Queer Culture, published in 2019 by Phaidon. He is the recipient of the San Francisco Art Commission’s Individual Artist Grant (2020), Zellerbach Family Foundation’s Community Arts Grant (2020), Fleishhacker Foundation’s Eureka Fellowship Award (2018), the Kala Art Institute Fellowship, AIR Program at Recology San Francisco, Graduate Fellowship at Headlands Center for the Arts, and the Cité Internationale des Arts residency in Paris. Hellu holds a Masters in Fine Arts in Art Practice from Stanford University and a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute.
