Ann Hamilton is a visual artist known for her site-responsive and large scale installations, public projects, and performance collaborations. Her ephemeral artworks are based in a career-long interest in felt experience as the basis for recognition and knowledge, as well as in the relationships between written language and tactile experience.
Hamilton has received the National Medal of Arts, MacArthur Fellowship, Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, United States Artists Fellowship, the Heinz Award, and was selected to represent the United States at the 1991 Sao Paulo Biennial and the 1999 Venice Biennale. She currently is a Distinguished University Professor of Art at Ohio State University.
