Don’t miss a unique opportunity to join internationally recognized artist Ann Hamilton for a walk through «at hand,» her show-stopping installation currently on view in «What Absence is Made Of.»

Ann Hamilton creates site-specific, multimedia installations that are simultaneously immersive and ephemeral. Initially commissioned by MASS MoCA for their largest gallery—a cavernous space the size of a football field—at hand combines the sounds of mechanization and audio recordings of a poem with the motorized release of translucent white paper, which gently descends from the ceiling. Though the paper accrues on the gallery floor in a sculptural “drift,” the effect of the installation remains one of loss and absence; the paper is blank, the movement is random, and the hand of the artist remains invisible.
