Location: Brooklyn, NY

This year has been a groundbreaking one for Maya Hayuk, as she mounted not only her first solo museum exhibition in the U.S., which was hosted by the renowned Hammer Museum. The artist created impressive murals for Deitch's "Women on the Walls" in Wynwood, the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto, and the "Headscapes" exhibition in New York, which was widely noted as one of the best curiatorial efforts in the city this year. Each project Hayuk has chosen to participate in this year has been of an ever-increasing magnitude. We can't wait to see what heights the artist will soar to in 2014.
