Lucinda Devlin: Sightlines
May 26, 2017
Selections from three series by photographer Lucinda Devlin are featured in this exhibition at the George Eastman Museum, Rochester, New York: Pleasure Ground (1977-90), Corporal Arenas (1982-98). and The Omega Suites ((1991-97). Best known for The Omega Suites--precisely composed images of execution chambers in the United States--Devlin has devoted her career to exploring the relationship between our bodies and the spaces that they inhabit. She has concentrated in particular on interiors associated with pleasure or pain, creating photographs that draw attention to the power relationships embedded in a room's architecture and decor. At the same time, her photographs function as poignant meditations on the familiar yet extraordinary spaces in which our bodies pass time. The exhibition will be on view from June 24-December 31, 2017.
In conversation with Curator-in-Charge at the George Eastman Museum, Lisa Hostetler, Devlin will discss her work on view in Sightlines, Friday, June 23 @ 6pm, Dryden Theatre.Read More >>
