Jamie Hamilton: tight rope walking workshop

  • Hermon Park 5566 Via Marisol Los Angeles, CA, 90042 United States (map)

Jamie Hamilton will lead an informal tight rope walking workshop.  Participants will explore balance through the act of standing and walking upon a line.  We will explore possibility and limitation, hopefully expanding our sense of self in the process. 

The workshop will be held over a period of 4 hours and participants are welcome to come or go at their convenience. 

Jamie Hamilton is a sculptor and high wire walker based in Los Angeles.  Drawing from a varied background in sport, music and building, Hamilton's interdisciplinary work arises from curiosity about the limits of the body, knowledge and materials. Building wood, concrete and steel structures for Judy Pfaff, working with Tom Joyce and Bruce Nauman, and as a fabricator has solidified a knowledge of material and working processes that informs his artwork. Described by ARTnews as a “free-wheeling modern-day Leonardo,” Hamilton makes an art of pursuing balance in precarious circumstances, evoking both mythic themes and contemporary dilemmas.
