The art of domestication (Oct. 30)


Photo submitted by Laura Letinsky

Contemporary photographer Laura Letinsky will share her fine-art images of “domestic arrangements” in the first installment of the Charles Arnold Lecture Series.

Whether it’s photographing the remains of daily meals, unmade tables or the intimacy between heterosexual couples, Letinsky says she tries to give her audience an extended essay on fragility. Her free lecture is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 30, in Webb Auditorium in the James E. Booth Building.

Letinsky says, “I explore formal relationships between ripeness and decay, delicacy and awkwardness, control and haphazardness, waste and plentitude, pleasure and sustenance.” She is a professor at the University of Chicago. Her works are in several permanent collections, including at Yale University Art Gallery and the Art Institute of Chicago. Her lecture is sponsored by RIT’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences.
