The Artist's Voice:
Jim Hodges with Jill Medvedow
In his survey exhibition at the ICA, artist Jim Hodges demonstrates his poetic approach to making art using a wide assortment of ordinary materials such as napkins, flowers, and mirrors. To describe his artistic practice and drive in 1998, Hodges said, “When I make art, I think about its ability to connect with others and its ability to change or affect others, to bring them into the process, to bring easy access to art.”
Hear directly from Hodges on what continues to drive his art making in this engaging conversation with Jill Medvedow, Ellen Matilda Poss Director.
