Liz Deschenes

Since the early 1990s, New York–based visual artist Liz Deschenes has produced a singular body of work that has done much to advance photography’s material potential and critical scope. Making use of the medium’s most elemental aspects, namely paper, light, and chemicals, her carefully calibrated installations probe disparate histories of image production, abstraction, architecture, and exhibition-making while also responding to a given site’s unique features.

For this yearlong exhibition—the artist’s first solo presentation at an American museum—Deschenes will produce a new body of work, reconfiguring the space of the Walker’s seventh-floor gallery with a photographic intervention.

Curator: Eric Crosby


Liz Deschenes is organized by the Walker Art Center.

The exhibition is made possible by generous support from Gayle and Mike Ahearn, Linda and Larry Perlman, and Laura Taft.
