To Contrive, Fabricate, or Construct.
This talk will revolve around the objects and questions that define Hanson's practice. Issues addressed will range from; the practice of weaving, to Frederic Church's Iceberg paintings, to mediated experiences created by time and technology.
Erika Lynne Hanson's practice holds the act of weaving at its core, yet takes the shape of installations that emphasize the relationships of objects. Hanson received a MFA from California College of the Arts, and holds a BFA in Fiber from The Kansas City Art Institute. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Kansas City, San Francisco, Chicago and Minneapolis. Currently Hanson is Co-Founder/Facilitator of 1522 Saint Louis, an experimental project space in Kansas City, and Lecturer at the Kansas City Art Institute.
