Anthea Hamilton

Anthea Hamilton (b.1978, London) is a Royal Academy graduate and a London based artist. Hamilton works with sculpture, painting, moving-image and performance to manipulate and alternate the history and image of the popular culture. In this manner, the artist expresses her preoccupation with the meaning of contingency and the effect of surprise. Solo projects include 59th International Short Film Festival, Oberhausen (2013), Firstsite, Colchester, Essex (2012), Tate Modern, London (2012), Frieze Projects East (with Nicholas Byrne), London (2012), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2012) as well as IBID Projects (2011) and Chisenhale Gallery (2008).  Her work has been part of important group shows such as Tramway Festival of Artists Moving Image, Tramway, Glasgow (2012), LUX Biennial of Moving Images, ICA, London (2012), Jason Dungan Invites, 176, London (2012), Small Collections, Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, UK (2009).  Hamilton is artist in residence at Gassworks, London, 2013.
