Hope Ginsburg will deliver a public lecture, presented in collaboration with the Sam Fox School’s Fox Fridays workshop series and Laumeier Sculpture Park.
Each of Ginsburg’s long-term projects builds community around learning. Her work is by turns collaborative, cooperative, and participatory. Artworks are made with peers, students, scientists, members of the public, and experts with knowledge from outside of the field. Her practice is interdisciplinary, social, and concerned with human and more than human well-being on our catastrophically changing planet.
Ginsburg has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as MoMA PS1, MASS MoCA, Wexner Center for the Arts, USF Contemporary Art Museum, Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU, Baltimore Museum of Art, SculptureCenter, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Contemporary Art Center Vilnius, and the Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Her work has received support from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and Women & Philanthropy at The Ohio State University. She is the recipient of a Wexner Center for the Arts Artist Residency Award, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship, and Art Matters Foundation Grant.
Ginsburg has attended residencies such as the Robert Rauschenberg Residency, Skowhegan, the Wexner Center Film/Video Studio and The Harbor at Beta Local. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Hyperallergic, Artforum, and The Wall Street Journal. Ginsburg holds a Master of Science in Visual Studies from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Tyler School of Art. She is a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts and lives and works in Richmond, Virginia.
