Phantoms in The Dirt

The collective exhibition “Phantoms in the Dirt”, hosted at MoCP in Chicago, gathers sixteen artists whose works focus on the mutability of the photographic imagery in relation to the (often invisible) forces that leave their mark on our surroundings: enigmatic remnants and traces, cryptic objects, rugged landscapes altered by human activities.

Guest curated by Karsten Lund and presented in collaboration with the Contemporary Arts Council, the show features pieces by Jeremy Bolen, Matthew Brandt, Shannon Ebner, Assaf Evron, Anya Gallaccio, Jay Heikes, Joachim Koester, Harold Mendez, Richard Mosse, Eileen Mueller, Arthur Ou, Alison Rossiter, Adam Schreiber, Daniel Shea, Greg Stimac and Shane Ward. In addition to the photographs, the exhibition includes sculptures, a 16mm film and a site-specific installation.
