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.

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. In January 2019, her first solo show All Languages Welcomed Here will open at Salem State University.
