Clarity Haynes: Feminism Through Art

I had the amazing opportunity to chat with New York-based artist Clarity Haynes, known for her work with the Breast Portrait Project, a social practice project started in LGBTQ and feminist communities which feature a series of torso paintings.

Clarity Haynes is a queer feminist New York-based artist and writer whose painting practice centers on the body, queer feminist resistance, and the archive. Her work has been widely exhibited, including at Denny Dimin Gallery in New York, presented by New Discretions; the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC; The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; Kniznick Gallery at Brandeis University; and Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ.

Clarity has received awards from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the MacDowell Colony, and the Corporation of Yaddo. Her work has been reviewed in ArtForum, the New York Times, Hyperallergic, and the New Yorker. She has also written about art for BOMB, The Brooklyn Rail, Hyperallergic and ArtNews.
