Sarah Charlesworth's 1980 Series STILLS Reprised at the Art Institute of Chicago
by BWW News Desk - Aug 29, 2014

Stills, a photographic series shown by Sarah Charlesworth (1947-2013) in February 1980, helped to define a photography-driven movement in American art that remains a cornerstone of contemporary art: the Pictures Generation.

These over-lifesize images of frozen moments ask us to consider how our most private, existential experiences will play out in the public eye. (more...)
