Harmony Hammond is an American artist, activist, curator, and writer. She was a prominent figure in the founding of the feminist and LGBTQ+ art movement in 1970’s New York. Hammond’s earliest feminist work combined gender politics with post-minimal concerns of materials and process, frequently occupying a space between painting and sculpture – a focus that continues to this day.
