Anne Wilson’s sculpture, drawings, videos, and installations evolve in that conceptual space where social and political ideas encounter the processes of handwork and industry. Her work has been shown at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Upcoming 2007 exhibitions include the Museum of Arts & Design in New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Wilson has received numerous awards including a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation grant and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. She is a professor and chair of the Department of Fiber and Material Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
