MAM/MSU Art Talk: Ann Hamilton

Montclair Art Museum

Ann Hamilton is a visual artist internationally recognized for the sensory surrounds of her large-scale multimedia installations. 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. Hamilton has received a MacArthur Fellowship, Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, United States Artists Fellowship, and the Heinz Award, and was chosen to represent the United States at the 1991 Sao Paulo Bienal and the 1999 Venice Biennale. She is currently a distinguished university professor of art at The Ohio State University.

About the series:
The MSU/MAM lecture series is a collaboration between the Master of Fine Arts degree program of Montclair State University and the Montclair Art Museum. It began in Spring 2002, after the Museum doubled its space, including the addition of Leir Hall. It became an annual series in the fall of 2002, featuring four lectures a year. Former speakers include prominent artists Kiki Smith, Philip Pearlstein, Tom Otterness, Mariko Mori, Shirin Neshat, Lorna Simpson, James Rosenquist, and Jeff Koons; artist and critic Robert Storr; curator John Elderfield; and art critics Jerry Saltz and Holland Cotter. Each talk is followed by a question-and-answer session and a reception with the featured guest.
