Hollis Hammonds: In Residence - Gifts of Time/Space

Thursday, March 7, 2024
5:50 pm

Hollis Hammonds is a multimedia artist whose work, built on memory and utilizing evidence from the public collective consciousness, investigates social issues ranging from economic disparity and state violence to environmental degradation and human-made disasters. Her dystopian drawings and found-object installations have been widely exhibited throughout the US, including solo exhibitions at venues such as Women & Their Work in Austin, TX, Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, SC, Hammonds has been an artist-in-residence at McColl Center for Art + Innovation, the Ucross Foundation, Atlantic Center for the Arts, and will be in residence at the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in 2024. Hammonds is the author of Drawing Structure: Conceptual and Observational Techniques and has had her creative work featured in New American Paintings, Manifest’s International Drawing Annual, FOA (Friend of the Artist Magazine), Uppercase Magazine, and Art on Paper. She is a Professor of Art at St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX.

Artist-in-residence programs provide artists both time and space to be fully immersed in their creative work, often in a place that is completely new and distant from their normal lives. This gift of time/space can be a catalyst in an artist's creative growth. Hollis Hammonds will discuss her recent residency experiences and the impact these opportunities have had on her creative practice.
