Hugh Hayden’s artwork explores cultural identities through creating tensions in content and minimal physical structures. Hayden’s methodical geometric processes juxtapose disparate social complexities to elucidate visual histories of class, gender, and race.
The Dallas native received a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University in 2007. Following graduation, Hayden won the prestigious Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Travel Fellowship to study the cultural origins of food-related architecture, art and design abroad. Hayden’s artwork has been exhibited both locally and internationally including commissions from Cabinet Magazine and Lacoste.
Hayden is a recent resident of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Residency and visiting artist at New York University. This fall he will participate in the 2012 Socrates Sculpture Park Emerging Artist Fellowship and Abrons Art Center AIRSpace Residency .
