Daniel Heyman

American, b. 1963

Daniel Heyman’s work in drawing and printmaking is some of the most important contemporary sociopolitical art of our time.  

Heyman was invited by Professors Kim Fink and Lucy Ganje from the University of North Dakota  in the summer of 2015 to begin In Our Own Words: Native Impressions an outstanding project of 26 prints that chronicles stories of individual Native people who live within the tribal Nations of North Dakota. The project includes both portraits and text from a range of people in the community – among them, a tribal leader and historian, a poet, two college presidents, a cook and a farmer. The portfolio consists of 12 reduction, color-woodcut portraits, by Heyman, and 12 accompanying letterpress prints, of their personal oral histories, by Lucy Ganje, as told while sitting for their portraits.

Heyman’s Iraqi Portraits give voice to the former detainees of Abu Ghraib prison. Between 2006 and 2008, Heyman traveled to Jordan and Turkey with American lawyer Susan Burke to witness the testimony of former prisoners held at Abu Ghraib and later released without charges. While lawyers collected statements for the lawsuit, Heyman sketched the likenesses of the detainees. Other works include portraits of witnesses of the Blackwater/Nisour Square shootings and When Photographers are Blinded, Eagles Wings are Clipped, a monumental 65-part etching, which has been  included in numerous exhibitions including  In Residence: Contemporary Artists at Dartmouth at the Kim Gallery, Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College (2014); Heyman’s solo exhibition I am Sorry It is Difficult to Start at The David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University (2013); and Here and Now curated by Innis Howe Shoemaker at The Philadelphia Museum of Art (2011).

Heyman completed an artist residency in Tel Aviv, Israel (summer 2014) where he researched national and ethnic loyalty which he will use to create a new series of prints and drawings. Daniel Heyman received his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania (1991) and his AB from Dartmouth College (1985). In 2010 Heyman was awarded the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in Fine Arts.  In 2009, Heyman received the Pew Fellowship in the Arts. Daniel Heyman’s work has been on view in one-person exhibitions at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, Jaffe Friede Gallery, Dartmouth College, NH; David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University, RI; University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA; St. Lawrence University, Canton, New York;  Linfield College Art Gallery, OR; Loyola Marymount College, Los Angeles, CA; Zilkah Gallery, Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT among others.

Daniel Heyman’s work is in many prestigious collections including Baltimore Museum of Art; Davis Museum, Wellesley College; Free Library of Philadelphia; Hood Museum of Art and Rauner Special Collections Library, Dartmouth College; Library of Congress; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, (LACMA); Minneapolis Institute of Art; The New York Public Library; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Princeton University Art Museum; RISD Museum; Saint Louis Art Museum; and Yale University Art Gallery and Beinecke Library, Yale University; among others.
