The Knoxville Museum of Art is delighted to present 'Wind/Rewind/Weave' a major exhibition of work by visual artist Anne Wilson.

'Wind/Rewind/Weave' investigates the global crisis of production and skill based textile labor through three major works: 'Wind-Up: Walking the Warp,' a unique installation titled 'Local Industry,' and the first exhibition of 'Rewinds,' a large sculpture in glass.

As the project 'Local Industry,' Anne Wilson has transformed one museum gallery into an active factory site, using it as a productive space where museum visitors work together through the production of a bolt of cloth.

From January 22 through April 25, 2010 the public is invited to join in the production of 'Local Industry' at the Knoxville Museum of Art.

Anne Wilson is a Chicago based visual artist who creates sculpture, drawings, video animations and installations that explore themes of time, loss, private and social rituals. Her work rests at the forefront of artwork connecting conceptualism and handiwork, activism and aesthetics. Through a diverse range of source materials and production methods, Wilson's practice extends the relational in terms of labor, collaboration, and identity construction.

Wilson's work has been presented at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan; the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and as part of the 2002 Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Wilson's art is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Detroit Institute of Arts; the Museum of Glass, Tacoma; and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, among others. Wilson is the recipient of grants from the Driehaus Foundation, Artadia, the Tiffany Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Illinois Arts Council. Rhona Hoffman Gallery, Chicago, and Paul Kotula Projects, Detroit, represent Wilson's work. She is a Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
