Anthea Hamilton (b. 1978, London) will present a newly commissioned work for ICA Miami’s central stairwell. Hamilton works across installation, assemblage, sculpture, and performance. Her works reflect on the pleasures and politics of looking as they connect found imagery and narratives. Hamilton’s immersive installations often play with scale and proportion, while referencing architecture, fashion, and popular culture. At times uncanny or comedic, Hamilton covers walls in faux-fur grids, creates oversize soft sculptures of butterflies and moths, or applies tartan-patterned wallpapers that revisit visual tropes of contemporary culture and shift them into surreal and estranged environments.
