Victoria Sambunaris: Taxonomy of a Landscape Exhibition Tour

Museum of Contemporary Photography, Columbia College, Chicago, IL


In 2014, The Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) at Columbia College in Chicago, IL, received support for its 2014-2015 exhibition tour of Victoria Sambunaris Taxonomy of a Landscape to cover transportation, crating, storage, travel, installation supplies, and publicity materials.

Curated by Christie Davis and consisting of photographs from the Lannan Collection, this mid-career solo exhibition has enjoyed a popular on-going tour since its debut at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY in 2011. After its presentation at MoCP in Chicago, the exhibition is scheduled to appear at the University of Maryland at Baltimore, the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno and the University of Texas at El Paso’s Rueben Center for the Arts. Sambunaris has expressed that she has “an unrelenting curiosity to understand the American landscape and our place in it.” Her photographs examine the role we play in and with nature.
