BORDER CROSSINGS and the Winnipeg Art Gallery are pleased to present our next MATTER lecture with internationally acclaimed artist ANN HAMILTON.
The MATTER lecture series brings significant artists, curators, writers and cultural commentators from all across the globe to Winnipeg.
Ann Hamilton’s work is as evocative as it is ephemeral. Her installations are visually stunning, and at once monumental and surprisingly intimate. She is a visual poet of the threshold and a master of scale. Many of her works combine sculpture, architecture, video, sound, printmaking, photography and the spoken word to create immersive environments that engage the senses and the imagination.
Ann Hamilton is a highly acclaimed multi-media artist. She received a BFA in textile design from the University of Kansas in 1979 and an MFA in sculpture at Yale University. Hamilton is the recipient of several prestigious awards including the MacArthur Fellowship, the Heinz Award, the United States Artists Fellowship and the NEA Visual Arts Fellowship. She is a Distinguished Professor at Ohio State University in the Department of Art and the 2016-2017 Bill and Stephanie Sick Distinguished Visiting Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The MATTER lecture series presents one speaker in both spring and fall. The inaugural event last November featured distinguished artist David Salle. Look for the third lecture in fall 2017.
BORDER CROSSINGS and the WAG thank The Winnipeg Foundation for supporting the MATTER lecture series. For more information about the series click here.
