FT Weekend Presents: Ronan McKenzie, ‘Finding Home’.
FT Weekend Presents an artist talk with Ronan McKenzie. Her work is often tied together with her passion for creating more imagery of connections, relationships and black joy, presenting the world as she would like to see it. She will discuss the many strands that form her practice and ‘Finding Home’.
Ronan Mckenzie is a multi-disciplinary artist from Walthamstow, North East London. Ronan has exhibited her work at spaces including Aperture Foundation, Red Hook Labs, Somerset House and The National Theatre, and is now the Director of HOME by Ronan Mckenzie, a multifunctional creative space. Her work has been presented on the covers of The British Journal of Photography, the FT Weekend Magazine, Garage Magazine, Teen Vogue and Creative Review, and within titles including Luncheon, Vogue, POP, i-D and Wall Street Journal.
