Hugh Hayden’s artwork explores the relations of subcultures to omnipresent natural and social contexts.

The artwork employs methodical processes to conflate histories, materiality and science into new visceral narratives.

The Dallas native received a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University in 2007. Upon graduation, Hayden won the prestigious Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Travel Fellowship to study the cultural origins of food-related architecture, art, and design abroad.

Hayden has exhibited both domestically and internationally including commissions from the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Alexander Wang, Cabinet Magazine, Lacoste, and VH1+Scope Art Fair.

Hayden has recently participated in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Residency, Abrons Art Center: AIRSpace Residency, and the Socrates Emerging Artist Fellowship 12.
