Warren Hatch - Biography

Warren Hatch takes city buses and trains to the more than thirty schools where he substitute teaches, carrying teaching equipment such as hand-held illuminated magnifiers, live spiders and a few live insects. Warren has learned that elementary students can develop a great desire to learn about insects, spiders, pond water life and plants through a microscope in the 2nd or 3rd grade, or earlier. He has produced 17 videotapes using a microscope, which subjects include protozoa, crystals, insects, spiders, mites, and sand. His 2006 DVD, In One Yard: Views Through a Microscope and Up Close, was reviewed by AAAS (the American Association for the Advancement of Science, in Washington, DC, which is the largest organization of scientists in the U.S.) and was chosen as an "Editor's Choice" in the review written by Carolyn B. Black, Ph.D., and was chosen as "one of the best science films of 2006" by AAAS.

The People’s Biennial

Can we change our expectations and ways of looking at art? Is it possible to escape traditional notions of taste and artistic product? Can curators, artists and audiences collaboratively challenge established curatorial models? People’s Biennial is artist Harrell Fletcher’s and curator Jens Hoffmann’s response to several challenging issues within the often-isolated world of art.

Further work from Warren Hatch may be viewed as part of The People’s Biennial at Washington High School as part of PICA’s 2010 TBA Festival
