Museum of Contemporary Photography Phantoms in the Dirt July 24 - October 5

The sixteen artists in this exhibition present an array of physical remnants and enigmatic traces, ranging from cryptic objects to the marks of human activity in rugged landscapes. Searching for phantoms in the dirt, so to speak, their works reckon with the facts of matter, the nature of photographic imagery, and the forces (sometimes invisible) that leave their mark on our surroundings. In doing so, they are also considering how the visible and the tangible-or sometimes what our senses can't apprehend at all-shape our encounters with the world around us or generate mutable senses of meaning. Guest curated by Karsten Lund (Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago).

Join us for an Exhibition Opening Reception on July 24 at 5:00pm.
