Sharon Lockhart's photographs and films frame the quiet moments and details of everyday life while exploring the subtle relationships between photography and cinema. Much of her photographic work since 1994 has relied on the staging of scenes characteristic of filmmaking, or has investigated issues of time, sequence and narrative in a manner reminiscent of conceptual art. Lockhart's films emphasize the photographic basis of the moving image, often using a fixed perspective to capture unexpected movements and human reactions in a given situation. This catalog documents the largest and most significant solo exhibition of Lockhart's work in an American museum to date, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (MCA). With essays by MCA curator Dominic Molon, who concentrates on the artist's transformation of conceptual photography, and art historian Norman Bryson, who presents a compelling examination of Lockhart's nuanced approach to narrative and the gaze, this richly illustrated volume focuses on Lockhart's photographic and cinematic work since 1994, including her major film projects Goshogaoka (1997) and Teatro Amazonas (1999).
