Ann Noël

*1944 England
Ann Noël has lived and worked in Berlin since 1980. (Germany)

Ann Noël is represented through eight of her artworks at the museum FLUXUS+ permanent exhibition:
"Silk Purses Out of Sow's Ears", collage on canvas (2010)
"Tisch aus Performance 'Weil wir es uns wert sind'" (2009)
"Foto aus der Performance 'Weil wir es uns wert sind'" (2009)
"Emmett", Mischtechnik (2003)
"Ann", Mischtechnik (2009)
"The Visual Diary", collaged box, books: Inkjet Print auf 178 big paper, spiral binding   (2008)
"Denk an dich", digital print (2008)
"Mr. Fluxus - a collective portrait of George Maciunas 1930-1978", in cooperation with Emmett Williams (1995)

Her wide-ranging talents as painter, graphic designer, printmaker, photographer and performance artist bear witness to a rare combination of creative ingenuity, bold experimentation, and up-to-date technical skills. In addition, she has had the good fortune to know and work with some of the more interesting artists of our time.

Her career began in earnest in 1964 at the Bath Academy of Art in Corsham, where she worked on projects with such artists as Ian Hamilton Finlay and John Furnival. After graduating with a diploma in graphic arts and design in 1968, she was invited to Stuttgart, Germany, to work with Hansjörg Mayer, a former mentor at the academy and one of the first publishers of artists’ books by Robert Filliou, Richard Hamilton, Dieter Roth, André Thomkins, Emmett Williams and so many others.

This experience with the avant-garde more than prepared her for the job offered her in 1969, to work in New York as assistant to Dick Higgins, publisher of the now legendary Something Else Press, where she met Emmett Williams, editor-in-chief of the press (and future husband) and such press regulars as George Brecht, John Cage, Allan Kaprow, Richard Kostelanetz, Daniel Spoerri and a plenitude of Fluxus artists.

During the seventies, in addition to developing her own creative work, she was graphic workshop supervisor at the California Institute of the Arts, lecturer in printmaking at the nova Scotia college of Art and Design, and Visiting Artist at the Carpenter Center for the visual Arts at Harvard University. In 1987 she was guest printer at the Machida-shi Museum of Graphic Arts in Tokyo.

Her work has been exhibited internationally, and includes recent projects at the Biennales in Venice, Liverpool and Lodz, Poland. She is also author of six artist’s books published by Rainer Verlag in Berlin.

Since the conception and the opening of the museum FLUXUS+ Ann Noël accompanies the events in Potsdam, gave artworks by herself and other artists in exhibitions and performed on several events of the museum. On April 21 in 2013 she was awarded with the first museumFLUXUS+medal during the celebrations of the 5th anniversary of the museum. Her continued support is a greatest value for the museum FLUXUS+.
