Maggie Hazen is a New York based media artist from Los Angeles and is the founder of the Juvenile Justice Digital Arts Project (JJ-DAP).  Hazen’s work explores themes of resistance and healing in a cinematically real world of violence through complex images, videos, and sculptures that merge mythology, technology, and mysticism. Motivated by the invisible worlds that often exist beneath the surface of things, she reveals a hidden journey through spaces that imprison the self physically, emotionally, and spiritually; finding pathways for the viewer to reach new thresholds of metamorphosis.

She has exhibited, screened and performed works at Pulse Miami Beach as part of Pulse Play; The Museum of Tolerance, Los Angeles, CA; Microscope Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Light Year on the Manhattan Bridge; The Granoff Center, Brown University; Performance Works Northwest. Portland, OR; CICA Museum, South Korea; Holland Projects, Reno NV; Icebox Projects, Philadelphia, PA; and The Boston Young Contemporaries, Boston, MA, among others. She is a current resident at Pioneer Works, NY and has had residencies and fellowships at The Bronx Museum; The Shanghai Institute of Visual Art; The Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art, European Graduate School, Switzerland; I:O at the Helikon Art Center in Turkey; Vermont Studio Center; and The Pasadena Side Street Projects, CA. She holds a BFA in sculpture from Biola University and an MFA in sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design and has taught at New York University, The Stevens Institute of Technology, The Shanghai Institute of Visual Art and is currently a professor at Bard College in Studio Arts.
