David Hartt: Stray Light presents color photographs, sculptures, and a video installation by Hartt reflecting on the iconic headquarters of the Johnson Publishing Company (EBONY, JET) in downtown Chicago.
From 6:30–7:30 p.m. Hartt will be joined on stage in the CMOA Theater by Felix Burrichter (editor and creative director of PIN-UP) and Dan Byers (The Richard Armstrong Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at CMOA) to talk about Stray Light and its forensic investigation into the power of cultural icons.
During this time you will also have the opportunity to meet artists-in-residence Melissa Catanese and Ed Panar. As part of the Hillman Photography Initiative Catanese and Panar have transformed the Coatroom Gallery into a playful, hybrid space for encounters with the photobook. With six thematic events during the run of the exhibition, The Sandbox introduces the public to the photobook as a unique and thriving medium.
