Curiosity about the natural world, “learning by doing,” and knowledge exchange inform Hope Ginsburg’s work, which takes the form of live events that explore the images, objects, and spaces that they generate. Her pedagogical project Sponge is headquartered at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, where she is an associate professor. Ginsburg’s projects and workshops have appeared in the 9th Mercosul Biennial, Porto Alegre, Brazil; The Museum of Modern Art, New York City; Proteus Gowanus, Brooklyn, New York; and Mildred’s Lane, Beach Lake, Pennsylvania. Upcoming group exhibitions include Explode Everyday: An Inquiry into the Phenomena of Wonder, at MASS MoCA (North Adams, Massachusetts); and a Distinguished Alumni Exhibition at Tyler School of Art’s Temple Contemporary Gallery (Philadelphia). Ginsburg holds a BFA in Sculpture from Tyler School of Art and an MS in Visual Studies from MIT.
