The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago presents a limited edition photo portfolio featuring twelve prints that are unique to this edition and in most cases reflect the artists’ work around the time of their solo exhibition at The Renaissance Society. The portfolio was curated by Executive Director and Chief Curator Susanne Ghez in celebration of her tenure at The Renaissance Society. Artists included in the portfolio are Darren Almond, Lothar Baumgarten, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Willie Doherty, Stan Douglas, Fischli/Weiss, Rodney Graham, Arturo Herrera, Zoe Leonard, Laura Letinsky, Thomas Struth, and Jeff Wall.

Choosing the works in the collection in collaboration with the artists, Ghez commented, “The artists were incredibly generous in offering significant images from important moments in their careers.” Ghez, who is celebrating her 40th anniversary at The Renaissance Society, continued, “As I reflect on my tenure at the museum, I realize that working with artists has been absolutely critical to my happiness. The works in this portfolio are emblematic of the formal and conceptual strength that I find so satisfying in art.”

Sales of the portfolio will support the museum’s exhibitions and programming. The portfolio can be purchased by contacting the museum at 773 702 8670.
