Ann Hamilton is a visual artist internationally recognized for her large-scale multimedia installations, public projects, and performance collaborations.

Responsive to the contingencies of the sites where she works, her recurring forms—cloth, texts spoken and written, animals, and people suspended or in motion—immerse viewers in an atmosphere both visceral and literary, individual and collective, animate and inanimate, silent and spoken.

Ann Hamilton received a BFA in textile design from the University of Kansas in 1979 and an MFA in sculpture from the Yale School of Art in 1985. She taught on the faculty of the University of California at Santa Barbara and served on the faculty of The Ohio State University. She currently serves as a board member to The Wexner Center of the Arts, The American Academy in Rome, United States Artists, and The American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Hamilton has been the recipient of the National Medal of the Arts, Heinz Award, MacArthur Fellowship, United States Artists Fellowship, NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture, and the Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship.
