Ann Hamilton Lectures at DAAP, University of Cincinnati on November 20, 2013

Ann Hamilton lectures, Wednesday, November 20, 2013, 5 pm, at the University of Cincinnati DAAP Room 4400, free and open to the public. 

In conjunction with the lecture, a selection of Ann's work, including her most recent edition, near-away is currently on display at Carl Solway Gallery.

near-away pairs artifacts from two previous installations: the husk of a hand shaped by paper from stylus, a 2010 project at The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, and the sliced book fragments re-bound as counterweights in the 2009 project human carriage, “The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia: 1860-1989” at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

The placement of the “hand” adjacent to the “book weight” expresses what changes us the most: the “hand” through the physical change of being  “touched” and the “book weight” through the mental change brought on through reading.

Diane Landry: by every wind that blows
November 9, 2013 – March 2, 2014
Curated by Raphaela Platow & Steven Matijcio
Celebrated Canadian artist Diane Landry translates everyday items and mechanical systems into mystical meditations on life, death and our relationship with technology. Turning the mundane into the wondrous, everything from water bottles and laundry hampers to bed frames and plastic cutlery are imbued with unexpected life. Like a scrapyard version of Disney’s Fantasia, Landry’s automated actors expand the basic functions of her respective materials – allowing their shadows to dance hypnotically across gallery walls. Whether these works speak to the sins of disposable culture or the untapped promise of the everyday, her mechanized entities inspire a magical re-evaluation of the material world.
Landry’s CAC exhibition will feature the U.S. debut of her newest installation Exhaustion: a chandelier-like form (made of plastic forks & knives) that floats up and down like a colossal jellyfish. The show also highlights some of her most notable works from the past decade, including swelling mandalas made from plastic water bottles and laundry hampers, as well as chiming bedframes and videos that measure time through the lens of the artist. As a special feature, Landry will perform one of these works during the November 9th opening – paddling a suspended canoe through plastic sheet waves high above the CAC lobby.

Linda Schwartz from Carl Solway Gallery and Diane Landry discuss work in progress at the Contemporary Arts Center.
