Sharon Hayes utilizes video, performance, and installation to investigate the intersections of history, politics and speech. Many of her works put the viewer between acts of public and private speech or make the viewer navigate different political rhetorics and historical periods. Sharon Hayes lives and works in New York and is represented by Tanya Leighton Gallery in Berlin. She is an assistant professor at Cooper Union, received her MFA from UCLA, participated in the Whitney ISP program, and earned her BA from Bowdoin College.
