In over 35 years as a visual artist, Anne Lindberg has worked within broad definitions of drawing and textiles in two and three dimensions. Her work currently includes graphite and colored pencil drawings on mat board and architecturally scaled, immersive sculptural installations made with volumes of fine chromatic thread pulled taut through space. While her work has a basis in abstraction, embedded within its formal and material language are concerns of time, sequence and causality, as well as a drive to speak about what is private, vulnerable, fragile and perceptive of the human condition. 

In this virtual talk, Lindberg will speak to the provocative space between textiles and drawing where she creates visual and bodily experiences that transcend language and suggest the presence of alchemy in everyday life.

About the Installation

Contemporary artist Anne Lindberg’s immersive installation what color is divine light? transforms light and thread into a site for contemplation and reflection on connections with ourselves, communities and individual conceptions of the divine. A series of programs within the gallery bring community members together for shared experiences designed to foster understanding and transcendence. Learn more about the installation
