Sharon Hayes: There’s so much I want to say to you
June 21–Sept 9, 2012

Sharon Hayes (b. 1970) is a New York–based artist who uses photography, film, video, sound, and performance to examine the nexus between politics, history, speech, and desire. This exhibition brings together existing pieces and newly commissioned works, all of which articulate forms of what Hayes calls “speech acts.” The works are presented within an environment designed by Hayes for the Whitney’s third floor galleries, in collaboration with artist Andrea Geyer.
