Known But Unknown: Nancy Holt’s Spinwinder: What Lies Beneath

Rebecca Uchill, director of the Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture at UMBC

(Reception 1 – 1:30 pm)

In 1991, artist Nancy Holt completed her most personal public sculpture, Spinwinder, a commission for the college campus that is now UMass Dartmouth. For years, rumors circulated of a “time capsule” buried beneath the sculpture. This lecture tells the story of a multi-year curatorial and research project that spanned archives, neighborhood lore, technical reconstructions, and various community engagements to unearth more information about Spinwinder and its buried materials and to restore the artwork in the spirit of Holt’s original intention.
