American artist Ann Hamilton studied textile design at the University of Kansas and sculpture at the Yale School of Art. Hamilton's primarily site-based installation works often combine sound, text, video, photography, books and large quantities of collected materials. Her practice is time-based and process orientated, and engages with the way bodies of knowledge are generated, contained, perceived and absorbed. Hamilton has exhibited worldwide, including a large solo exhibition at IMMA in 2002. She represented America at the Venice Biennale in 1999.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, IMMA’s galleries will be closed from the evening of Friday 18 September until Saturday 10 October 2020. The grounds of IMMA and the RHK will remain open. Thank you for your cooperation.
