The American activist and artist Sharon Hayes made her breakthrough back in the 90s with her performance tour ‘Lesbian Love Tour’, where she visited 45 lesbian living rooms across the US. Since then she’s made a career from her dynamic and innovative works, taking the intimate and performing it on improvised and public stages, like her piece Everything Else Has Failed! Don’t You Think It’s Time for Love?, which saw her perform love letters outside a bank in New York. This exhibition at Moderna Museet features performances, video pieces and photography.
