Anne Wilson (born 1949) creates sculpture, drawings, internet projects, installations and stop-motion animations that explore themes of time, loss, private and social rituals. In her own words, My source materials hair, linen, lace, pins, wire, and thread are the props of both domestic culture and larger social systems. I join together the points where these systems overlap, and where issues of sexuality and decorum, vitality and death construct meaningful relationships and find release.

Wilson has had numerous solo exhibitions, including those at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; MassArt, Boston; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Her work has also been included in group exhibitions such as the 2002 Whitney Biennial; Alternative Paradise at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan; and Out of the Ordinary at Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
