Ann Hamilton; Five New Lithographs
Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl
535 West 24th St, Third Floor, New York, NY 10011
Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl is pleased to present a series of five new lithographs by Ann Hamilton. The exhibition will be on view February 4 through March 26, 2022 in our Project Space.
Ann Hamilton is well known for her large-scale installations and collaborations with diverse groups of visual artists, poets, and performers. Physical works, such as sculptures, handmade collages and limited-edition fine art prints, have emerged from this practice throughout her entire career. The artist’s relationship with Gemini goes back more than two decades, and in that time she has produced a wide range of prints and sculptural multiples using a variety of media and nontraditional materials.
The five new lithographs on view now are a continuation of a previously published series of eight screen prints related to the artist’s 2015 exhibition the common SENSE, commissioned by the Henry Art Gallery. As a Visiting Fellow at the University of Washington, Hamilton was given unfettered access to the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, where she was seduced by the extensive collection of mammal, bird, and amphibian specimens. Inspired by Aristotle’s idea that touch is the sense that is common to all animal species, the artist focuses on what it means to ‘touch’ by way of seeing.
