Gestures (1974)

Although best known as a photographer and a performance artist, Hannah Wilkebegan her career as a sculptor working in ceramics, a practice that was the foundation for all other aspects of her artistic practice.
Gestures traces the ways in which the artist’s expanded notion of sculpture threads through diverse aspects of her body of work.

The exhibition will begin with a focused look at Hannah Wilke’s early sculpture and include, as examples, her early box sculptures and the gestural objects.
The show will then consider the way in which Wilke’s complex conception of sculpture fed the development of her living sculptures, video, and performance art.
