Kimberly Mayhorn is a self-taught multi-disciplinary artist utilizing installation, sculpture, theatre, dance, sound and film/video. The Brooklyn-based artist is a Whitney Museum of American Art, Independent Study Fellow, and was selected by Essence magazine as one of "30 Women to Watch.”

Kimberly creates large-scale, site-responsive installations, assemblages, and sculptures that are process-driven and often influenced by a historical context, then stripped away from their initial motivation, pared down to a singular thought and built back up slowly to create a new language and narrative in her artwork.

Kimberly has shown in a variety of institutions such as The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Rush Arts in New York, Five Myles in Brooklyn, Aljira in Newark, The African American Museum in Philadelphia, The University Museum at Texas Southern University in Houston, and the African American Museum in Dallas. She has also collaborated with choreographers Dai Jian, Shalewa Mackall and the late Lowell Dennis Smith.

Kimberly is an Emmy nominated video editor with 20 years experience working in the television industry at networks such as NBC, CNN, CBS, MTV and TV credits with ESPN, A&E, UN AIDS, Travel Channel, Discovery Health Channel, and National Geographic.
