Danny Giles combines sculpture, performance and research to give form to political and metaphysical positions. His practice attempts to represent performative states of dispossession and to redress oppressive and exploitative systems. Giles received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011 and his MFA from Northwestern University in 2013. He has exhibited work in Chicago at Threewalls, Roots and Culture, Fernway Gallery and LVL3 Gallery and in New York at Socrates Sculpture Park and Smack Mellon.
