About the artist
About Hat On Hook
Hat On Hook is a 6′ x 8′ gallery located within Disjecta that is dedicated to showing single objects at a time in a looser timeframe than the main galleries. These works will range from contemporary objects and art video to archival items. The intention of the space is to allow for a complication, expansion, rebuttal or insight into ideas running through the larger exhibitions – although sometimes they will exist completely independently. Many of the objects were chosen based on their need for a more intimate, closer viewing that would be impossible in a group or larger exhibition. The title of the room comes from it being the size of a closet, a place where a resident curator can hang her hat and the act of exposing your head.
