Aria Dean

Aria Dean is an artist, critic, and curator whose work examines the structures of individual and collective subjectivity in relation to aesthetics, cultural histories, and technology. Working across traditions of Black radical thought, European philosophy, and media studies, Dean's work deconstructs and reconfigures networks of visibility, representation, and power. In her critical writing, Dean reevaluates art historical theory and proposes alternative approaches that offer a thorough accounting of dispossession, circulation, and social death. Her writings have been published in Artforum, e-flux journal, Texte zur Kunst, and the journal November, of which she is a founding editor.
