Chicago-based writer and poet Carrie McGath reviews our current exhibition Joel-Peter Witkin: From the Studio, published by Third Coast Review. She describes the exhibition:

The work of Joel-Peter Witkin stirs up an array of emotions and aptly tantalizes the eye and mind. From a sense of staggering beauty in their black and white soft-starkness (almost dream-like), to that of feeling unsettled, conflicted, and perplexed, this survey of his work is a must-see for those who know his work and those who are new to his darkly eloquent and bewitching oeuvre.
