Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts
OCT 03, 2015 – JAN 09, 2016
The Graham Foundation, in partnership with the 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennial, is pleased to present Barbara Kasten: Stages, the first major survey of the work of Chicago artist Barbara Kasten. Organized in conversation with the artist and with full access to her extensive archive, the exhibition will include works spanning her nearly five-decade engagement with abstraction, light, and architectural form. Since the 1970s Kasten has developed her expansive photographic practice through the lens of many different disciplines, including sculpture, painting, theater, textile, architecture, and installation. Well known within photographic discourse, more recently she has begun to be reconsidered within the broader contexts of architectural theory and contemporary art.
Barbara Kasten: Stages is organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania and is curated by ICA Curator Alex Klein.
