There’s just one week left to see Ann Hamilton’s installation the event of a thread at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. It closes on Jan. 6, 2013.
Hamilton is one of America’s most-honored artists. She is the recipient of a MacArthur ‘genius’ grant, a United States Artists fellowship and the Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture. In 1999 she represented the United States at the Venice Biennale. Today she also sits on the board of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Images and video of many of her installations and objects are available at her website.
Hamilton was the guest on Episode No. 58 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. She talked about many of her best pieces, including the Armory installation and work presented at the Hirshhorn, the Pulitzer and at MASS MoCA.
