Hugh Hayden: Huey
29 June – 21 August 2021
This summer Lisson Gallery presents a new body of work by Hugh Hayden that explores his childhood and the ingrained cultural expectations of young Black men including sports, attending church, and getting haircuts. Lisson Gallery's 504 West 24th Street space will be transformed into a high school gymnasium with new sculputral works in wicker and ebony. Hayden — whose previous exhibitions have interrogated the concept of the 'American Dream', and the role historical foodways and dining traditions have played in shaping American identity — invites the viewer to examine their place within this ever-shifting ecosystem.
Tuesday - Saturday: 10:00am - 6:00pm
