My Time is Yours is a Two- Part Exhibition. One at the Old Art Building in Leland, Michigan and the other at Corson Auditorium at Interlochen Center for the Arts in Interlochen, Michigan. Using the stark differences in architecture, the Old Art Buildings 1922 construction with its large yet intimate interior and the cavernous lobby of Corson’s 1970’s Brutalist style constructed entirely in concrete, Hildebrandt was inspired to think of My Time Is Yours as a journey with two parts: after cancer and after child.


My Time Is Yours is an exhibition that will explore autobiography, the passage of time, illness narrative and recovery from trauma via repetitive marks, abstracted drawings and paintings, and animation. The element of time is essential to both the 2D imagery and animations. In My Time Is Yours , the artist attempts to recover time lost to cancer treatment, and to track time and development of a new self and her young child. The works serve as touchstones to mark a life both interrupted and reinvigorated. My Time Is Yours will be comprised of medium and large-scale drawings, paintings, installation and projected animations.
