Since the early 1970’s, Barbara Kasten has created geometric abstractions by photographing sculptural installations made out of materials such as glass, mirrors, metal and paper. Enlivened by direct and refracted light, these inventive photographs function as both 2-D images as well as records of 3-D constructions. They pre-date and speak to the work of many younger artists working today.
Chicago at Work is a new lecture series bringing Chicago-based artists and art workers to speak about their practice and how they make it work in the city we call home. This is a student-run lecture series, presented by the Student Programming Board.
