Krista Tippett, host of public radio’s On Being, talks with artist Ann Hamilton in this live version of her show, to be taped for later broadcast. Featured in PBS’s Art 21 series (the episode on spirituality), Hamilton is an internationally acclaimed artist known for sensual installations that combine evocative soundtracks with organic and tactile materials. Her work often emphasizes time and process in a fundamentally meditative and spiritual approach to labor and making. She has been awarded a MacArthur Fellowship, NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, and the Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, among many others.
Tippett, a Peabody-award-winning broadcaster and New York Times bestselling author, takes up the great animating questions of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? She and her guests reach beyond the headlines to explore meaning, faith, and ethics amid the political, economic, cultural, and technological shifts of 21st century life.
This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Sacred, an installation that probes the nature of the sacred within a secular, multi-faith society. By juxtaposing works of art from multiple times and places, “Sacred” invites visitors to explore historic expressions of the divine, the spiritual, the essential, and the beloved, and ponder the word’s meaning in their personal lives.
