Devonté Hynes (aka Blood Orange) will join NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music as their Spring 2021 Artist-in-Residence. The residency kicks off Monday (February 22) at 9 p.m. Eastern, when Hynes will host a virtual Q&A moderated by Chair of the Clive Davis Institute, Jason King. The conversation will touch on Hynes’ career, artistic process, and more. You can RSVP for the free, public event here.
During the residency, Hynes will mentor students throughout the spring semester, hosting workshops and talks discussing his body of work and breaking down his compositions. “I’m excited to meet students, witness their creative process, and see how I can be of assistance to them,” Hynes said in a press release. “It’s going to be as much of a learning experience for me as it is for them and I’m really looking forward to it.”
