Maiza Hixson on artblog radio – full podcast with singing and great talk


Delaware Center for Contemporary Art curator Maiza Hixson, who is also an artist, sees curating as part of her art practice. In fact, as you can see from a video of hers included in the People’s Biennial at Haverford (until Mar 2), art and curating are completely co-mingled for Hixson. Hixson lives in Philadelphia and commutes to the DCCA in Wilmington; she’s a roommate of the Dufala Brothers and her art collaborator, Lauren Ruth, in a sprawling Chinatown apartment.  A few months back Hixson and Ruth created a project space in their building’s tiny elevator. In February, The Shaft became the restaurant Le Shaft.  See a video on her website.  Hixson is from Kentucky and has some great singing chops. During our interview, she sings a Dolly Parton song for us, acappella.
