Sharon Hayes

Sharon Hayes (b. 1970, Baltimore) lives and works in New York. Her art practice engages video, performance and installation in an ongoing investigation into various intersections between history, politics and speech. She employs conceptual and methodological approaches borrowed from artistic and academic practices such as theater, film, anthropology, linguistics and journalism, to explore new representational strategies that examine and interrogate the allegorical character of the present political moment.
