Voices: Anne Wilson
Gallery 400 Lecture Room
400 South Peoria Street
Anne Wilson (born 1949) creates sculpture, drawings, internet projects, installations, and stop-motion animations that explore themes of time, loss, and private and social rituals. In her own words, My source materials hair, linen, lace, pins, wire, and thread are the props of both domestic culture and larger social systems. I join together the points where these systems overlap, and where issues of sexuality and decorum, vitality and death construct meaningful relationships and find release. Her work is currently on view in Art in Chicago 1945 1995, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and UPDATE: A Closer Look at Six Chicago Artists, Roy Boyd Gallery, Chicago.
Wilson is currently teaching in the department of fiber and material studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She earned a BFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and an MFA from California College of the Arts.
