AnnHamilton2014aOneEveryone (2)Visual artist Ann Hamilton was back at the Park Avenue Armory last week, doing photographic portraits, during The Art Show. New Yorkers will recall The Event of a Thread, Ann’s wildly popular performance art installation of 2012.

Ms. Hamilton’s portraits of show goers, part of the ONEEVERYONE series, was done in conjunction with The Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and the Carl Solway Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her use of a thermoplastic polyurethane membrane (Duraflex) between her subjects and the camera helped to create an especially ethereal effect.
