Sharon Hayes uses photography, film, video, sound and performance to examine the intersections between the personal and the political. Drawing particular attention to the language of twentieth–century activism, Hayes’ work offers a re-examination of our current relationship to political protest, political speech, and the way in which this relationship is infused with traces of history.
Hayes' recent solo exhibitions include Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland, Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Museo Naconial Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver. Recent group exhibitions include Kunsthaus Hamburg, Hamburg, MoMA P.S. 1, New York, Hayward Gallery, London, Wellcome Collection, London, 10th Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju, Korea, and the 2013 55th Venice Bienniale, Venice.
