Artist Sharon Hayes stages protests, delivers speeches and organizes demonstrations as ongoing artistic investigations into the relations of history, politics and space. At both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions Hayes is mounting large-scale public performances titled Revolutionary Love 1 & 2: I Am Your Worst Fear, I Am Your Best Fantasy. Organized by Creative Time in New York in collaboration with the Walker, these events involve a large group of citizens reciting coming out speeches of American politicians. For this talk, Hayes is joined by Creative Time curator Nato Thompson for a conversation on this project and her work in video, performance and installation.
