Aria DeanAria Dean is an artist and critic 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. Her critical writing reevaluates art-historical theory and proposes alternative approaches that thoroughly account for dispossession, circulation, and social death. Her writings have been published in Artforum, e-flux journal, Texte zur Kunst, and November, of which she is a founding editor. As a visual artist, Dean has exhibited widely in solo and group presentations at such venues as the Renaissance Society, Chicago; Greene Naftali, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and the 2022 Whitney Biennial.
