Artist Talk: Ann Hamilton

Ann Hamilton will give a talk regarding "habitus" and her other work, in conversation with Converge curator Kristy Edmunds, Executive and Artistic Director of the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA. 

Ann Hamilton is a visual artist internationally recognized for the sensory surrounds of her large-scale multi-media installations. Using time as process and material, her methods of making serve as an invocation of place, of collective voice, of communities past and of labor present. Noted for a dense accumulation of materials, her ephemeral environments create immersive experiences that poetically respond to the architectural presence and social history of their sites. Among her many honors, Hamilton has been the recipient of the National Medal of the Arts, Heinz Award, MacArthur Fellowship, United States Artists Fellowship, NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture, and the Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship.

Hamilton's talk is part of the Converge 45 art festival. Free and open to the public.
