Working with archives, video, performance, social practice, sculpture, and drawing, Danielle A. Dean investigates the recursive loops between the circulation of ideas and the material reproduction of global capitalism. Operating across media and with a variety of collaborators and participants, her work examines the fault lines within this seemingly closed circuit. Dean received an MFA from California Institute of the Arts and is an alumna of the Whitney Independent Study Program. Recently completed projects include new commissions for Mercer Union, Toronto (2024), a solo show at Tate Britain, London (2022), and Performa, New York (2021). Other recent solo shows include: Long Low Line, Times Square Arts, NY (2023); Bazar, ICA San Diego (2023); and True Red Ruin, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (2018). She participated in the Whitney Biennial in New York (2022). Group exhibitions include: This Land, at The Contemporary Austin (2023); Freedom of Movement, at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands (2019); The Centre Cannot Hold, Lafayette Anticipation, Paris (2018); and Made in LA, at The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2014).
