Séance: Photographs by Shannon Taggart

Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

For the past twenty years, American artist Shannon Taggart (born 1975) has documented Spiritualist practices and communities in the United States, England, and Europe. The resulting body of work, Séance, examines the relationship of Spiritualism to human celebrity, its connections to art, science, and technology, and its intrinsic bond with the medium of photography. This exhibition presents forty-seven haunting images from the series, revealing the emotional, psychological, and physical dimensions of Spiritualism in the 21st century.

Peggy Fox: Morality Tales

The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents Peggy Fox: Morality Tales, an online exhibition featured through January 31.  Fox’s experiments in collage expand the existing imagery in her photographs. The sets of collages are not prescriptive, but are rather evocative of emotions, impressions, and symbols. Viewed as “morality tales,” the images conjure stories but remain ambiguous, their lessons open to multiple interpretations.
