3. Liminal Infrastructure

May 19, 2015

Liminal Infrastructure presents newly commissioned photographs made in and around Chicago by the Optics Division of the Metabolic Studio. Working with the Liminal Camera, a massive, portable camera obscura fashioned from a shipping container, the Optics Division uses experimental technology in an ongoing effort to map and depict the American landscape. These large-scale prints not only highlight the evolving history of photographic imaging, but also locate the city of Chicago within a complex global network of transportation systems, industry, and commerce.

Essays by Lawrence Weschler and Gregory J. Harris

4. Ink, Paper, Politics: WPA-Era Printmaking from the Needles Collection

September 29, 2014

Ink, Paper, Politics is a beautifully produced catalog that accompanies an exhibition at the DePaul Art Museum in celebration of the generous gift to the museum of one hundred WPA-era prints from the collection of Belverd and Marian Needles. In addition to full-color reproductions of the prints in the exhibition, the book also features essays by leading scholars addressing various aspects of American printmaking in the 1930s, as well as a brief essay by the collector. The result is a wonderful reminder of the stunning artwork that was produced in our name at one of our nation’s darkest times.

November 4, 2013

With Contributions by Gregory J. Harris and Cleophus J. Lee

With We Shall—a companion volume to the DePaul Art Museum exhibition of D’Amato’s photographs—D’Amato broadens his scope to include communities on Chicago’s west side. Through emotionally charged portraits and richly layered interior views, the fifty-four color photographs of We Shall share with us D’Amato’s genuine and complex perspective on life in some of the most challenging and troubled neighborhoods in the nation.
