Laura Shill Phantom Touch

LAURA SHILL PHANTOM TOUCH

FEBRUARY 20, 2016 – JULY 3, 2016

For her first solo museum exhibition, Denver-based Laura Shill will create a new installation that features reclaimed materials in richly mannered, densely layered environments and which plays with the space as a site of disclosure and concealment. It will also include many of her Absent Lovers series in which the artist appropriates images from covers of Harlequin romance novels to create hauntingly beautiful cyanotypes. These works often reveal a violent, sinister, and sexualized dynamic latent in the clichéd depictions of lovers from these stories.

The exhibition is curated by Nora Burnett Abrams.

This exhibition is sponsored in part by the Director’s Vision Society members and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. MCA Denver also thanks the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
