Two Exhibits by Laura Letinsky Featured in Chicago magazine

Laura Letinsky, Professor in the Department of Visual Arts, was featured in the February issue of Chicago magazine. Letinsky has two exhibitions currently open. Ill Form and Void Full (2010-11) is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art from February 7–April 17, and Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art is on view at the Smart Museum from February 15–June 10.

From Chicago magazine:

The remains of a meal are never as appealing in real life as they are when photographed by Laura Letinsky, whose light-drenched images make melon rinds, lipstick-stained wineglasses, and even fast-food wrappers oddly enticing. The U. of C. professor gives us more to drool over in February, with two new exhibits: Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art, a group show at Hyde Park’s Smart Museum that celebrates the connection between artistic output and the act of sharing food, and a solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

An internationally renowned photographer, Letinsky is known for her elegantly composed and emotionally evocative still-life compositions. Her work is featured in the permanent collections of a number of major museums.
