Hayley Newman’s broad ranging work explores humour, subjectivity, documentary practices and fiction. She creates performances, interventions, music and texts and has made work in nightclubs, shops, on trains and marches as well as for the concert hall or gallery.
Her practice incorporates a range of media including photography, video, textiles and sound. In 2011 she declared herself self-appointed artist-in-residence in the City of London and wrote the novella Common which drew together the social, economic and ecological crises.
She often works in collaboration, most recently with eco-electro girl-band The Gluts who took their musical Café Carbon to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, and the art/activist group Liberate Tate. Newman lives and works in London and is represented by Matt’s Gallery. She is Reader in Fine Art and tutor on the doctoral programme at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL.
