A Photo Portfolio to benefit The Renaissance Society
The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago presents a limited edition photo portfolio featuring twelve prints by artists Darren Almond, Lothar Baumgarten, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Willie Doherty, Stan Douglas, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Rodney Graham, Arturo Herrera, Zoe Leonard, Laura Letinsky, Thomas Struth, and Jeff Wall.
The images included are unique to this edition and in most cases represent the artists’ work around the time of their solo exhibitions at The Renaissance Society. The portfolio was curated by Executive Director and Chief Curator Susanne Ghez in celebration of her tenure at The Renaissance Society. Having chosen the images in consultation with the artists, Ghez commented, “The artists were incredibly generous in offering significant images from important moments in their careers.”
Sales of the portfolio will support the museum’s exhibitions and programming. The portfolio can be purchased by contacting the museum at 773 702 8670.
