Danielle Dean is an artist whose work draws from her multi-national background of being English, American, and Nigerian. Her practice explores the colonialism of mind and body—the interpellation of the subject by power structures working through digital media, news, and advertising. Recent solo exhibitions include a shoe, a phone, a castle (2017) and Hexafluorosilicic (2015) at Commonwealth and Council in Los Angeles, and Focus (2016) at The Studio Museum in Harlem. Group exhibitions include Shifters, Art in General, NY (2016); It Can Howl, Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Atlanta (2016); What Shall We Do Next, Diverse Works, Houston (2016), and Made in L.A. 2014 at The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. Dean has participated in residencies at The Whitney Independent Study Program in New York and The Core Program in Houston, and she has been awarded grants from the Rema Hort Mann Foundation and Creative Capital. She received her M.F.A from California Institute of the Arts and B.F.A from Central St Martins.
