Maiza Hixson, curator at the DCCA, sings for us in this Artblog Radio clip


Delaware Center for Contemporary Art curator Maiza Hixson is also an artist, and she sees her curating as part of her art practice. You can see a video of hers in the People’s Biennial at Haverford right now and you can see exhibits she’s curated at the DCCA. Hixson lives in Philadelphia and commutes to Wilmington; she’s a roommate of the Dufala Brothers in a sprawling Chinatown apartment.  A few months back Hixson and Lauren Ruth, another roommate, created a new project space, The Shaft, in their building’s tiny elevator. Last First Friday, The Shaft became the restaurant Le Shaft.  See a video on her website.  Hixson is from Kentucky and has some great singing chops. In this clip, she sings a Dolly Parton song for us and says Parton could be an art critic! Full episode next Monday, stay tuned!
