“You know we as bodies inherit ourselves as both containers and as being contained” – Ann Hamilton
I really love Ann Hamilton’s work. it is installation and performance and combines elements to let us see the unseen in a new way. Check out this earlier blog entry about the piece below.

Few artists have had as pronounced an impact on contemporary art as Hamilton. Her installations from the last 20 years comprise one of the most substantial bodies of work in modern American art. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Hamilton speak about her practice, in conversation with Grynsztejn, during the artist’s indigo blue installation in the second-floor galleries. A book signing and reception follow the talk.
