Period & Style
The University of Texas at Austin Department of Art and Art History chair Jack Risley spoke with visionary artist and National Medal of the Arts recipient Ann Hamilton on 2 February 2016 in the Art Building auditorium. Ann discussed her work, motivation and process, providing insight into her experience within the visual art world. An audience Q&A followed.
Ann Hamilton is a visual artist internationally acclaimed for her large scale multi-media installations, public projects and performance collaborations. Noted for the sensuousness of their materiality, these works are evocative invocations of particular places, of collective voices and of communities of labor.
A Conversation with Ann Hamilton was hosted by Landmarks, the public art program of The University of Texas at Austin, and the Department of Art and Art History.
