Visiting artist | Hugh Hayden
The Sculpture department continues its fall 2019 lecture series with a talk by Hugh Hayden, whose work investigates natural and artificial means of identification. Hayden begins with objects that inherently carry significant associations with societal categorization: race, religion, ethnicity, education, sexuality and the like. Using a rigorous process of sawing, sanding and sculpting, he combines disparate types of wood to create new composite forms that address themes of assimilation and acceptance, and metaphorically disrupt traditional American social context.
