Welcome to our tenth episode of Y2K GROUP CHAT featuring artist Frankie Phillips. We recorded this episode in early March 2021. We speak with Frankie about his work featuring coat hangers and t-shirts collaged to make new visionary paintings, ideas of fashion, barriers, symbolism, the materiality of his work, and diaries.

Frankie Phillips is an emerging artist living and working in Ridgewood, Queens. He received a BFA from RISD in Providence, RI. This podcast episode was made on the occasion of Frankie’s third solo exhibition with Y2K group.
