Persistent Adaptation: An Installation by Alison Hiltner
Saturday, November 14th, 6-9pm
November 14 - December 31, 2007
Alison Hiltner’s current work focuses on the secret life of micro organisms, drawing from the hysteria of mass media science Hiltner creates humorous and disturbing situations in which our bacterial cohabiters cultivate a visible imprint on our everyday lives. Persistent Adaptation will take the viewer into a world in which the invisible yet constant aspects of our existence are exposed and beginning to invade.
Alison Hiltner has had solo exhibitions at Spike Gallery in New York and the Museum of Surgical Sciences in Chicago, this will be her first solo exhibition in Minneapolis where she lives and works. Hiltner is also a recipient of a 2007 Minnesota State Arts Board Grant and will also have a piece in the Minnesota Biennial: 3D II at the Minnesota Museum of American Art.
