Dylan Hausthor is an artist based on a small island off the coast of Maine and the Pacific Northwest. Their work is an act of hybridity–an effort to render field recordings into myth. Interested in small-town gossip and the fragility of journalistic truth, they look for stories that are found at the end of dirt roads and in the tops of fir trees. They subscribe to emotional cohesiveness in their work and rely on vignettes, tangents, and tropes of conceptual art in their storytelling. They are a 2019 recipient of a Nancy Graves fellowship for visual artists, runner-up for the Aperture Portfolio Prize, nominated for Prix Pictet 2021, a recipient of the Ellis-Beauregard grant and residency, the winner of Burn Magazine’s Emerging Photographer’s Fund, a Penumbra Foundation resident for 2021, a Light Work resident for 2022 and has three of their monographs collected by MoMA. They graduated with their MFA from Yale in 2021 and their work has been shown nationally and internationally.
