Although Laura Letinsky depicts the remnants of a meal in her displayed archival pigment print, Untitled #37, the medium of her work communicates something very different. Her subtle combination of magazine cutouts and images snipped from photographs including her own, along with occasional actual objects on this tablescape defamiliarizes the medium of a photograph, underlining the gap between the present image and the absent object it represents.
The artist will discuss her work in the context of the exhibition and her artistic practice followed by a Q&A session.
FREE, but space is limited for this in-person event. Please register in advance.
This exhibition and related programs are organized by the Smart Museum’s Feitler Center for Academic Inquiry.
