re:collection
Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago
July 13 – October 1, 2017
re:collection is a celebration of the MoCP’s vast archive of photographs, and an exploration of how we perceive images.  A stream of images runs through the galleries, spanning the history of photography and offering a diverse array of approaches. Each photograph speaks to its neighboring photograph in terms of content, form or another, more subtle, connecting factor waiting to be discovered. At certain junctures, tributaries are formed that group related ideas and address some of the most pressing social issues of our time. Each line of images starts with a camera-less construction, a nod to the beginnings of the medium when images were made without the camera apparatus as we know it today, and a gesture meant to underscore the unreliability of photographic representation.

We live in a time when an alarming array of plants and animals struggle to even exist in

Surface of Things
November 18, 2016 - January 15, 2017
The Surface of Things brings together a diverse group of contemporary artists who use the photogram as a starting point to pursue aesthetic and philosophical questions. The works in the exhibition invite us to examine how objects carry meaning and cultural and political weight and the ways in which they become metaphors for other things. In this sense, a thing, or its surface, is never all there is.
