Event Details

Come Explore our Tim Hawkinson exhibition highlighting works of variable media from throughout his career.

Light Refreshments will be served.

Tim Hawkinson’s (b. 1960, San Francisco) idiosyncratic creations are meditations on nature, machines, mortality, the body and human consciousness. Since the 1980s, the artist has used common found and store-bought materials, handcrafted objects, and machines to shift familiar subject matter off-kilter, creating visual conundrums and conceits imbued with deeper meaning. His inventive works range in size from monumental kinetic and sound-producing sculptures to almost microscopic pieces created from such unassuming materials as fingernail clippings and eggshells. Driven by ideas, materials, and an interest in transformation, Hawkinson continues to create unlikely and thought-provoking associations by transforming common materials into works of art. Hawkinson has participated in numerous renowned exhibitions in the United States and abroad, including the Venice Biennale (1999), the Whitney Biennial (2002), and the 2003 Corcoran Biennial in Washington, D.C.
