096. Inhabiting the Space Underneath This Skin: A Conversation with Richard Haley

This week Ryan and Garreth sit down with Detroit-based artist Richard Haley to discuss personal history, graduate school, and tacos. Richard’s solo survey show can be viewed from September 3 – November 27, 2021 at Shockoe Artspace.

Richard Haley is an artist, curator and writer living in Detroit. His work has been exhibited nationally, including the Yuerba Buena Center for the Arts, Performa, Locust Projects, Pensacola Museum of Art, Acre TV and the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts. He will be debuting new interactive and video work this November at Bert Green Fine Art in Chicago. He recently curated a show of the unlikely pairing of David Ireland and Mike Kelley at the Elaine Jacob Gallery in Detroit in collaboration with 500 Capp St. His collaborative writing practice with Dr. Mary Elizabeth Anderson has resulted in numerous articles published in academic journals. Articles thinking through pandemic performance are forthcoming in Performance Research and Evental Aesthetics.
