Please join us on Thursday, 1 October for a reception to celebrate the Graham Foundation’s new exhibition, Barbara Kasten: Stages, with opening remarks by artist Barbara Kasten and curator Alex Klein. Spanning Kasten’s five-decade engagement with abstraction, light, and architectural form, this exhibition explores the artist’s expansive photographic practice and highlights her critical engagement with architecture and her impact on a new generation of artists. Barbara Kasten: Stages is presented in partnership with the 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennial.
In conjunction with the exhibition opening, the Graham Foundation, with Distributed Art Publishers, is pleased to launch Barbara Kasten: The Diazotypes––a special small-run artist book of Kasten’s diazotypes, a body of work she created while living in California in the 1970s using a process commonly employed to create architectural blueprints. Along with the exhibition catalogue, Barbara Kasten: The Diazotypes will be available for purchase at the Graham Foundation Bookshop. [ more on barbara kasten ]
