Join Allison Grant, Assistant Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago
for an immersion into the work of Leslie Hewitt, on view beginning September 21 in the
Anna K. Meredith Gallery. Leslie Hewitt’s work deals with a number of issues that can be
traced through the history of photography: Race and representation, personal and collective
history, and the constructed image. Follow these threads back into the history of photography
and examine other artists’ concepts about similar issues in the present.
