From here you can link to some examples of Wilson's work and collaborative projects.


Anne Wilson is a visual artist whose objects and installations explore diverse aspects of material culture. Her work draws upon culturally constructed meanings, conceptual strategies, and perception. Although using predominantly found textiles, and labor associated with the domestic work place (stitch, crochet), she also utilizes web site construction, sound and collaborative processes in developing her themes.

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; and the DeYoung Museum, San Francisco; among others. She is the recipient of grants from the Tiffany Foundation, The ArtCouncil, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Illinois Arts Council. Wilson has shown extensively: her solo exhibition entitled "Anne Wilson: Anatomy of Wear" was presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, July - October 2000.
