About the Artist

Ashley Hunt is an artist, activist and writer who engages the ideas of social movements, modes of learning and public discourse. His work is often concerned with questions of power and the ways that some people have more access to it and others have less.

His works have been presented at the the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Modern, P.S.1/MOMA, the Nottingham Contemporary, the Gallery at REDCAT, Documenta 12, the 3rd Bucharest Biennial, and various community-based venues throughout the United States.
