Anna Shteynshleyger Exhibit

by

From Tzivi’s January ’10 Spotlight in the JUF News: The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago will open a new exhibit featuring the work of photographer Anna Shteynshleyger on Sun, Jan 3.

Born in Moscow, Anna moved to the USA in ‘93 at age 16. She trained at Yale University and currently teaches at Columbia College Chicago. According to Hamza Walker, Director of Education, her goal as a photographer is “to look at what’s closest to her with critical distance.” This includes her many Orthodox friends, her grandmother’s apartment in Moscow, and even her ex-husband.

Anna will speak about her work at the opening, and four additional tie-in lectures have also been scheduled: Margaret Olin on Jan 21; Jan Schwarz on Jan 24; Leora Auslander on Feb 7; and Charles Bernstein on Feb 14 (closing day).

The Renaissance Society is located on the 4th floor of Cobb Hall (5811 South Ellis). For complete information, visit their website.

Jan Lisa Huttner (“Tzivi”) is the Arts & Culture critic for Chicago’s JUF News as well as a Chicago YIVO board member.
