Lisson Gallery presents the first Los Angeles solo exhibition of Hugh Hayden. Hayden utilizes materials in his practice that are frequently loaded with multi-layered histories in their origin, including objects as varied as rare indigenous timbers, rattan, cast iron, church pews, hair, and souvenir African sculptures. From these Hayden creates new composite forms that also reflect their complex cultural backgrounds. Crafting metaphors for human existence and past experience, Hayden's work addresses themes of assimilation, agency and acceptance, and metaphorically disrupts traditional American social context.
