Born and raised in Southern California, Maggie Hazen is an interdisciplinary artist and performer. She received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and has done collaborative research at CERN, MIT and Brown University. Hazen's work investigates the role of women in technological advancement by relating to the female body as an alien form. She is particularly invested in questions of identity and the body, exploring the impact – profound, ubiquitous, ambivalent – of digital technologies and social spaces on the formation of subjectivities and speculative corporealities. Her work aims to investigate the tension generated between technology and gender.
She was most recently invited to study at the European Graduate Studies in Saas-Fee Switzerland to research art and the politics of estrangement where she also exhibited her work. Her residencies have included Vermont Studio Center and a collaboration with Pasadena Side Street Projects. She has shown her work in solo exhibitions at Brown’s Granoff Center and the Los Angeles Museum of Tolerance for the 20th anniversary of the 1992 LA Riots. She has also been featured in a range of magazines and journals, you can give the CV a look if you desire those kinds of details.
