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.
