Chicago: Amanda Ross-Ho Exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago

Starting in July, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago hosts Los Angeles-based artist, Amanda Ross-Ho’s first outdoor public art project, “The Character and Shape of Illuminated Things.”

Playing upon the ubiquity and speed of digital photography, Ross-Ho will transform Chicago’s plaza into an enormous photo studio, with objects on display for the purpose of being photographed by the public, while the sun provides a shifting source of light, affecting both perception of how the objects look in real life and how they appear in photographs. Ross-Ho hopes to collect and share images taken by viewers to consider the circulation and recycling of public information and how it affects the production of aesthetic objects.
