Keynote Speaker: Sharon Hayes

Sharon Hayes is an American multimedia artist. She came to prominence as an artist and an activist during the East Village scene in the early '90s. She primarily works with videoinstallation, and performance as her medium. Using multimedia, she "appropriates, rearranges, and remixes in order to revitalize spirits of dissent." An exhibition of Hayes's work entitled There's So Much I Want to Say to You was shown at the Whitney Museum in the summer of 2012.
