Banshee is a group exhibition exploring the subject of adolescent women. In Irish mythology, the Banshee is a female spirit viewed as an omen of death that appears as either a hideous, old hag or an enchanting, young woman. This showcase of photography captures the status of the contemporary American girl. Anna Cerniglia of Johalla Projects has organized this exhibition with the intention of taking this group of photographs to be shown by our affiliates in Rome. With the popularity of imagery of young females in contemporary photography, we hope to shine a light on some Chicagoans who have been portraying this intriguing theme.

Featuring work by Caitlin Arnold, Aron Gent, Maureen Peabody, Daniel Shea and Greg Stimac.
