A seminal voice in American political art, Sharon Hayes reinterprets the Ancient Greek Echo myth
New York–based multimedia artist Sharon Hayes (born 1970) explores how speech echoed or repeated can have the force of an action, a force that rivals the original speech act, and offers a feminist reading of Echo, who was punished for her powers of conversation with the inability to speak anything but other's words. This overview includes older and new work.
