About Harmony Hammond & Talk Description

Harmony Hammond will show examples of her work and discuss coming of age as an artist in Minneapolis, her participation in New York City feminist art movements of the 70s and 80s, later involvement with feminist art projects in Minnesota, and the state of feminist art today!

Harmony Hammond is an artist, art writer and independent curator who lives and works in Galisteo, New Mexico. Considered a pioneer of the feminist art movement, she lectures and publishes extensively on painting, feminist art, lesbian art, and the cultural representation of “difference”. She is an alumna of the University of Minnesota and was a co-founder of A.I.R., the first women’s cooperative art gallery in New York and Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art & Politics. As Professor of Art, she taught at the University of Arizona for seventeen years; currently mentors MFA students at Vermont College; and is a visiting artist at numerous art schools. Hammond has had over 45 solo exhibitions and her work has been shown in many museums nationally and internationally. Recently, her work was included in “WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution” (2007) a major historical survey exhibition that traveled to venues in the United States, Canada, Europe and Mexico. Her work is represented in the permanent collections of many museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis and she has received fellowships from numerous foundations. Hammond’s groundbreaking book Lesbian Art in America: A Contemporary History (Rizzoli, 2000) received a Lambda Literary Award and remains the primary text on the subject. Currently she is the Santa Fe Correspondent for Art in America.

Katherine E. Nash Gallery Mission
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a research laboratory for the practice and interpretation of the visual arts. We believe the visual arts have the capacity to interpret, critique and expand on all of human experience. Our engagement with the visual arts helps us to discover who we are and understand our relationships to each other and society. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery will be a center of discourse on the practice of visual art and its relationship to culture and community -- a place where we examine our assumptions about the past and suggest possibilities for the future. The Nash Gallery will play an indispensible role in the educational development of students, faculty, staff and the community. http://nash.umn.edu/

Department of Art Mission
The Department of Art provides an introduction to the practice of art for all students as well as immersive training for emerging artists. We promote creative expression and conceptual development through a broad range of art disciplines and practices. Initial experiences emphasizing traditional methods are supplemented at intermediate and advanced levels by experimental processes. We offer courses in painting and drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and experimental media (EMA). Students pursue their work in our state of the art facilities, mentored by our faculty, all artists recognized in their fields. http://www.art.umn.edu/

University Libraries Mission
