An Errant Line: Ann Hamilton/Cynthia Schira

Critics' Choice

Ann Hamilton and Cynthia Schira launched a two-woman takeover of the ground-floor galleries of the University of Kansas' Spencer Museum of Art this past spring. The former student-teacher duo (Hamilton, a professor at Ohio State University, studied fiber art with Schira at KU in the late 1970s) found inspiration in the collection, practices and architecture of the museum itself. Hamilton covered the Spencer's central court with rose-colored fabric banners bearing haunting photographs of 18th-century Italian nativity figures, rarely seen objects owned by the museum. Schira's black-and-white woven cloth used words and images to refer to the Spencer's role in collecting and caring for objects. The artists' installation was self-referential yet appealed simultaneously to the intellect and the senses.
