Shayne Oliver for Hood by Air

Founded in 2006, Hood by Air is the convergence of an ensemble of artists, under the creative direction of Shayne Oliver, that works in fashion, experimental music, image making, nightlife, and performance. Their work is grounded in radical interrogations of the body as a site for limitless renegotiations of identity and meaning, imagining new possibilities for subjectivity liberated from strictures of the normal. Relying on strategies such as appropriation and sampling, Hood by Air’s work subverts traditional divisions between original and copy, human and machine, and art and commerce.
