Darren Bader was born in New York in 1978, distinguishing himself for a high-level career in the contemporary world art scene. He boasts many solo exhibitions in institutional spaces: Meaning and Difference, The Power Station, Dallas (2017); Reading Writing Arithmetic, Radio Athènes-Institute for the advancement of contemporary visual culture, Athens (2015); Where Is a Bicycle’s Vagina (and Other Inquiries) or Around the Samovar, 1857, Oslo (2012); Images, MoMA-PS1, New York (2012).
Darren Bader’s work takes up and makes his own the artistic tradition of the ’90s, recalling what the French art critic Nicolas Bourriaud defines “relational art”. The American artist gives life to works which take up the themes of inclusion and sharing: his works directly involve the spectators, inviting them to join the exhibition project.
