About Hugh Hayden

Formally trained as an architect, Hugh Hayden (b. 1983, Dallas) deploys laborious processes—selecting, carving, fabricating—resulting in dynamic, surreal, and critical responses to personal experience and social and cultural issues. Renowned for his use of wood—taking disparate species and manipulating them to reveal complex histories and meanings—Hayden crafts intricate metaphors and meditations on experience and memory that question social dynamics and the ever-shifting ecosystem. He holds an MFA from Columbia University, New York, and a bachelor of architecture from Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Princeton University Art Museum, New Jersey (2020), and White Columns, New York (2018). Hayden’s work is in the collections of the Princeton University Art Museum and the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York. Hugh Hayden lives and works in New York.
