Darren Bader (b. 1978, Bridgeport CT) is an American artist living and working in New York. He received his BFA from New York University in 2000. Bader’s works fall into a number of broad groupings, including word works, pairings, "impossible" sculpture, trash sculpture, and collaborative installation, often exploring the interconnectedness of seemingly disparate objects through complex (re-)arrangements, surprise juxtapositions, and absurd associations.
