Anne Wilson is a Chicago-based visual artist who creates sculpture, drawings, performances and video animations that explore themes of time, loss, and private and social rituals. Her artwork embraces conceptual strategies and handwork using everyday materials -- table linen, bed sheets, human hair, lace, thread, glass, and wire.

In 2015-16 her work is included in Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft and Design, Midcentury and Today at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC (traveling to the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.) and Art_Textiles at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, England. Her 2014 performance commission, To Cross (Walking New York), was staged at The Drawing Center in NYC within the exhibition Thread Lines. Her work was also included in Fiber: Sculpture 1960-Present, originating at the ICA Boston and traveling to the Wexner Center for the Arts and the Des Moines Art Center. In 2013 Wilson's solo exhibition Dispersions opened at the Rhona Hoffman Gallery and her work was included in the Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber at the Zhejiang Art Museum in China. 

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; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester; and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, among others.

Wilson was named a 2015 United States Artists Distinguished Fellow and​​ is the recipient of awards from the Driehaus Foundation, Artadia, the Tiffany Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Illinois Arts Council.
