Anthea Hamilton, 'A Space for Thought'

We joined Turner Prize-nominated artist Anthea Hamilton for DACS' inaugural Annual Lecture, who spoke on the evocative theme A Space for Thought.

It’s rare to find the time to simply stop and think.

Technology, time, money and even politics can stop us from pausing to look inwards. Perhaps we’re scared of what we might find? This is precisely what we have asked multi-media artist Anthea Hamilton to do.

About the speaker

Anthea Hamilton is a Turner Prize-nominated artist who in 2017 became the first black woman to be awarded a commission to create a work for Tate Britain's Duveen Galleries, The Squash.

Working across sculpture, installation and performance she is interested in the complexity of ways in which we read and respond to images.
