Dara Friedman explores notions of performativity, urban space, and the individual in the public sphere in her poetic films and videos. Friedman’s work has been the subject of one person exhibitions at venues such as the Miami Art Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Kitchen, New York; and Site Santa Fe, Santa Fe, NM. Her work has been included in recent group shows at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany; MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. A new work, Dancer, is currently on view at the Hammer through April 14.
