For three decades, Ann Hamilton has been renowned for her large-scale, labor-intensive, and site-responsive installations that relate to both the architectural presence and the human history of their locations. Her engaging multimedia installations surround the viewer with sensory input - from visual and auditory to tactile - and frequently use time itself as an essential element, featuring cycles of growth and decay that become the focal point of her ephemeral and mesmerizing works.
Hamilton is a poignant observer of social history with a unique capacity to materialize abstract concepts such as language, memory, and time. Though formally trained in textile design and sculpture, her work also stems from her self-taught investigation of performance art, photography, film/video, and audio production.
Free and open to the public, MassArt’s visiting artists series serves as a vital cultural resource for the college, Boston, and beyond. All lectures are located at MassArt’s campus at 621 Huntington Avenue and are accessible on the green line E train at the Longwood/Medical Area stop or by the 39 bus.
