Anne Wilson: New Labor

Anne Wilson’s impeccably executed sculpture is grounded in an aesthetic revolution forged by Post-Minimalists, feminists, and fiber artists who took up malleable, expressive, fibrous materials in the late 1960s and ’70s to challenge the intellectual and physical rigidity of Minimalism. Thirty years later, Wilson’s art practice could be described as “post-disciplinary,” culminating in hybrid forms derived from widely divergent sources—from meticulous handmade textile construction to the exploration of architectural form, from collaborative art practices to a focus on the pervasive sense of flow in sound and digital art.
