Anne Wilson

Fiber and Material Studies

I create objects, drawings, horizontal fields, and performances that explore themes of time, loss, and private and social rituals. My artwork embraces conceptual strategies and handwork using everyday materials—table linen, bed sheets, human hair, lace, thread, glass, and wire. Recent exhibitions include "Thread Lines" at The Drawing Center in NYC and "Fiber: Sculpture 1960­Present" originating at the ICA/Boston and traveling to the Wexner Center for the Arts. I am a Professor in the Department of Fiber and Material Studies and believe in the interdisciplinary nature of SAIC—I am interested in working with graduate students across SAIC departments and areas of study.
