Join artist Sharon Hayes and Dean Daderko (Curator, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston) for an interactive discussion of Hayes’ work in conjunction with the release of her monograph published by Phaidon. This discussion will center notions of participation, audience, and protest and will draw upon the long exhibition history and friendship Hayes and Daderko share.
Sharon Hayes engages performance, photography, film, video, sound, and text to interrogate the intersections between personal and collective spheres. Her deeply affective, queer approach to history and politics is drawn from the language of twentieth-century activism, drama, anthropology, and journalism.
Since 2010, Dean Daderko has been the Curator at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH). During this time, he has commissioned and written about artworks by LaToya Ruby Frazier, Joan Jonas, Paul Ramírez Jonas, Nicolas Moufarrege, Gina Pane, Wu Tsang and Fred Moten, and Haegue Yang, among others.
