> DESCRIPTION

UBS 12 x 12: New Artists/New Work: Jill Frank

August 8 – 30, 2009

Chicago photographer Jill Frank presents new photographs that portray unique perspectives of significant moments in history alongside works from an earlier series, Psychodrama, that share awkward and painful personal memories that are performed for the camera. The rich color photographs are hung in simple frames to evoke the feel of a family’s living room. Her recent work makes use of collaboration and collective memory to enact performances based on events from personal narratives as well as historical and literary sources.

Frank leads a gallery talk about her exhibition Tuesday, August 25, at 6:30 pm.
