Dan Tague

 

Dan Tague is a multi-media artist, curator, and activist from New Orleans whose multi-faceted work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. He is well-known for his dollar bill series that is a hybrid of sculpture, photography and political commentary. Tague often addresses the issues of contemporary life by rendering powerful visual statements. Installations, photography, and artistic activism are his means of confronting and responding to the concerns of today’s world. 
 
Tague’s work appears in numerous public and private collections including The Whitney Museum of Art and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation. He is the recipient of several awards including ones from the Joan Mitchell Foundation and from the Pollock Krasner Foundation.
