Thanks to Liz Leach and PNCA this weekend is officially Ann Hamilton Weekend in Portland with 2 ways to see Hamilton (an artist who is very interested in the body) in the flesh. Hamilton was last in Portland back in 2005
and this time she has an exhibition at The Elizabeth Leach Gallery to boot.
Ann Hamilton's installation, The Event of a Thread, (2012) at the Park Avenue Armory
Hamilton's lecture at PNCA on Friday night
is perhaps the most accessible way to catch the MacArthur Award winner this weekend.
Artist Talk : Friday November 1st

The second event on Saturday should be interesting as Hamilton discusses the body in context to fashion and another artist, Josiah McElheny. Titled, "THE ABSTRACT BODY & FASHION Some thoughts on the abstract body," this should be a more intimate event so get there early.
Hamilton, "has created installations that bring together sensory landscapes with performance, crafting spaces and outfits for her works' participants that investigate the line between objects, subjects and bodies. In relationship to Josiah McElheny's work, which culls from modernist narratives constructed around sartorial fashion, Hamilton and scholar Jessica Burstein will address what it may or may not mean for the body to be abstract when it comes to fashion.
Screening: Oskar Schlemmer's "Triadic Ballet" will follow the conversation."
Ann Hamilton and Jessica Burstein | November 2, 3-5PM
