Fred Wilson (born 1954) is an American installation artist and
political activist who received a MacArthur Foundation "genius grant"
in 1999 and the Larry Aldrich Foundation Award in 2003.
Wilson's unique artist approach is to examine, question, and
deconstruct the traditional display of art and artifacts in museums.
With the use of new wall labels, sounds, lighting, and non-traditional
pairings of objects, he leads viewers to recognize that changes
in context create changes in meaning.
