About the Artist

Tim Hyde received an MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts in 2005 and a BA in History from Vassar College in 1992. In his work, Hyde investigates the relationship between architecture, temporality and the conditions at play in the production of time-based images. Hyde’s photographic and video work questions the limits of visual perception as mediated by the camera. Since 2005, his work has been included in numerous group exhibitions among them Balance and Power: Performance and Surveillance in Video Art at Rose Waltham Museum; A Tale of Two Cities, Busan Biennale; Person of the Crowd: The Contemporary Art of Flânerie at the Neuberger Museum of Art; Landscape and Affect at the Sculpture Center in Queens, NY; and more recently This is the Future before it Happened at Outpost for Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. In 2006, he participated in the Lost Highway Expedition, a project initiated by the School of Missing Studies and Centrala Foundation for Future Cities. Hyde’s work is included in the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and The Ulrich Museum of Art. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Live Cinema/Tim Hyde is the artist’s first museum solo exhibition.
