Visiting Artist, Alison Hall

Alison Hall from Hollins University visited us at our hotel and gave our group an engaging talk about her work and the role that Italian art and culture have played in its evolution, and in her thinking about what it means to be an artist. The video below features an interview with the artist on the occasion of her 2013 exhibition at the Taubman Museum in Roanoke, Virginia. In it she discusses particularly the influence of Giotto on her work, and touches on the idea of collaborative working processes, so much a part of the way art was made for centuries, and which, for the artist, relates strongly to her working class origins in a small Virginia town.
