Hammes is an Interdisciplinary artist, arts organizer, and educator based in Philadelphia. Working primarily in sculpture, sound, and video, Hammes’ practice challenges the power structures we participate in, to address questions of identity, class, and the ideologies we use to constitute ourselves as individuals. Hammes holds a 2015 MFA from Tyler School of Art and 2004 BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is the director and curator of Pilot+Projects, a small artist-run exhibition space, and teaches at Tyler School of Art and The University of the Arts. Hammes has shown at spaces such as the Philadelphia Art Museum, the Woodmere Art Museum, the Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University, The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, The Hills Aesthetic Center, Temple Contemporary, The Hyde Park Art Center, and Te Tuhi Centre for the Arts
