Internationally recognized artist Ann Hamilton lectures on socially engaged art

Ann Hamilton's "Chorus" installation in the Cortlandt Street subway station within the World Trade Center fades into a head shot of Ann Hamilton. The "Chorus" installation is a field of raised marble text on a marble block wall and merges the text of the Declaration of Independence with the U.N.'s Declaration of Human Rights.

Award-winning artist Ann Hamilton will present her lecture “Art, Connection and Interaction” at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13 on Zoom. Registration is free, and the public is invited to participate.

In the session, Hamilton will talk about her projects in the context of how art makes connections and promotes interactions among concepts, objects, spaces, and human beings. Her talk will challenge the audience to reconsider their existing perceptions of art through a lens of social engagement. Hamilton’s large-scale multimedia installations, public projects and performance have significantly impacted countless people around the world.

The event is part of the Art Education Fall Guest Speaker Series. It is sponsored by The California Arts Project, Fresno State ASI, the Department of Art and Design and the Center for Creativity and the Arts.
