I work at Art in General as an installer, but I recommend Letha’s show because her work is not only interesting formally in marrying photography and sculptural materials, but beyond that, it helped me come to see her work as interventions, in the context of Land Art. Don’t miss the beautiful book on display too, which elegantly translates her gestures into the printed page. Allow yourself lots of time to look, breathe, and think.

Now through June 30, 2013
