Michael Dayton Hermann

New York based multidisciplinary artist Michael Dayton Hermann creates work that draws upon the inescapable bombardment of digital imagery to confront the familiar and examine the subconscious from unexpected perspectives. Hermann has exhibited consistently for the past 20 years following receipt of his MFA from Hunter College in NYC where he studied art theory with conceptual artist Robert Morris and executed his thesis under the advisement of Nari Ward. His polymath approach to life rejects easy categorization. He is as adept in his studio as he is in business, philanthropy, and public speaking aways centering the vital role visual art plays in society.

He is the author of two books: Warhol on Basquiat and Andy Warhol: Love, Sex, and Desire and is a member of the board at Children’s Museum of Art. In his role at the Warhol Foundation, Hermann conceived Andy Warhol: Machine Made, a ground-breaking online auction of five unique NFTs presented by Christie’s, in addition to developing numerous high-profile Warhol projects including The Andy Warhol Diaries docuseries on Netflix and collaborations with Comme des Garçons, Dior, Tiffany, Absolut and many others, generating nearly $100M in revenue to support the philanthropic work of The Andy Warhol Foundation.

The exhibit discussed is REconstituted at Baxter St, Camera Club of New York.
