Ann Hamilton: the common SENSE
The artist  writes, “To touch is always to be touched in return.” Ann Hamilton illustrates how touch is not only mere physical contact–when we touch anything, it also touches us back, leaving an imprint. Performances through singing and reading will animate your experience as you wander through the galleries. Participation is encouraged–add your own image to the portraits of visitors along our wall and take home a newsprint image of an animal to remind you of your experience of the common SENSE.

Call for Reader/Scribes
As you peruse Hamilton’s works, you will notice individuals reading aloud throughout the exhibition. Reader/scribes are volunteers who read from a specially chosen book and transcribe the text into a project log. The reader/scribe becomes the conduit for a physical record of the collective activity. If you are interested in participating in the common SENSE as a reader/scribe, sign up here.
