Dell Marie Hamilton is an interdisciplinary artist, writer and independent curator whose projects include artist talks, solo performances and collaborative work. Working across performance, video, installation, painting and photography she uses the body to investigate the social and geopolitical constructions of memory, gender, history and citizenship.
Dell has a B.A. in journalism from Northeastern University and received a merit scholarship to obtain her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. A self-professed political junkie, she also served as a member of current Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s arts and culture campaign team in 2013. This past January, Dell debuted large-scale mixed-media paintings for her first solo show All Languages Welcomed Here, which was held at Salem State University.
Including 106 objects and organized in just under twelve weeks, Dell’s most recent curatorial project, Nine Moments for Now was presented in the fall of 2018 at Harvard’s Cooper Gallery for African and African American Art. The show highlighted the complex relationship between art and civic discourse and was rolled out via fellow artists Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman’s For Freedoms/50 States Initiative. Nine Moments for Now has garnered both national and local recognition and has been nominated for a Hubweek Art Award and was ranked by Hyperallergic.com as one of 2018’s top 20 exhibitions in the U.S. To explore Dell’s work follow her on Twitter and Instagram: @dellmhamilton
