Jill Sigman's TEN HUTS Published by Wesleyan University Press

Monday, Sep 18, 2017

Congratulations to 2017 Visiting Artist Jill Sigman, whose book Ten Huts has just been published by Wesleyan University Press! 

"An artist’s book that explores the ability of art to engage us and re-envision our environment," says the publisher, "Ten Huts documents a series of site-specific huts that were hand built from found and repurposed materials ranging from the mundane (e-waste and plastic bottles) to the bizarre (circus detritus, dental molds, and mugwort grown on the banks of a toxic creek) in landscapes as varied as industrial Brooklyn and the Norwegian Arctic. Each of the extraordinary huts in this full-color book is a structure, a sculpture, and an emergency preparedness kit that raises questions about sustainability, shelter, real estate, and our future on this planet."

Stay tuned for a Fall 2017 book signing event at Tisch!
