Anthea Hamilton: biography, selected museum exhibitions and shows at kaufmann repetto

 

biography

Anthea Hamilton was born in London, in 1978. She lives and works in London.

Anthea Hamilton’s work weaves complex symbols and narratives, bringing together references from architecture and design history to personal themes via fashion and popular culture. Her sculptures and immersive installations are often animated by performances that involve and activate the public as much as the space.

 

selected museum exhibitions

Recent solo shows include: The Squash, Tate Britain Commission 2018, Duveen Galleries, Tate Britain, London; The New Life, Secession, Vienna, Austria; Anthea Hamilton Reimagines Kettle’s Yard, Hepworth Wakefield; LICHEN! LIBIDO! CHASTITY!, Sculpture Center, New York; Sorry I’m Late, Firstsite, Colchester, UK; Les Modules, Foundation Pierre Bergé– Yves Saint Laurent, Palais de Tokyo, Paris.

Her work has been presented as part of the British Art Show 8 and in numerous international venues, such as at the Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin, (with Nicholas Byrne), the 58th Venice biennale, the 13th Lyon Biennale and the 1th Gwangju Biennale.

She was one of four shortlisted artists for the 2016 Turner Prize.
